On Tuesday, February 9, 2021, the Strategic Plan for Youth and Emerging Adults (YSP) will be presented to Long Beach City Council.

Eighteen Youth Ambassadors, representing all Council districts, developed data collection instruments, facilitated five community forums, and assisted with data analysis to inform the plan. The Youth Ambassadors also co-designed and participated in three My Brother's Keeper (MBK) townhalls that explored the intersection of COVID-19 and the country's social uprising and racial reckoning, given the YSP was developed during a critical moment in our nation's history. 

The YSP provides a blueprint for the City's collaborative efforts to support youth and young adults, including the development of an Office of Youth Development and an alignment with the actions outlined the Racial Equity and Reconciliation Initial Report.
