Wimberley Valley Youth Voice
In November 2019, WimberleyValleyWorks hosted the first annual Wimberley Valley Youth Summit. Students from KAPS, Wimberley High and the Blanco River Academy attended along with supportive adults. The youth went through a strategic planning process and chose two goals:
Dance Hall - To bring the community together with music, dance, and good food to make Wimberley stronger.
Youth Center – To provide a safe, creative space where youth connect with each other and the community, participate in and plan activities/events
After the Summit, youth gathered to pursue next steps. Their plan was to host a community gathering for youth and adults in April, 2020 to unveil fundraising plans. Unfortunately, with COVID 19, their efforts are on an indefinite, but temporary, hold. We look forward to getting back in the swing with their priorities!
