Regenerate Neighborhoods is an approach to civic education that engages young people and their neighbors and prepares them to collaborate, ideate, and champion initiatives that can make positive change in their communities. We believe that our neighborhoods can become stronger when people of all ages have a better understanding of how they are built and managed over time. Our work started in a Chicago high school and now we want to work with other communities. Pledge now to join the movement for neighborhood-based learning!
