This is the image for the news article titled Play City Planning Exercise for Tierra Vida KidsOn the morning of August 8th, students participating in the 21st Century summer program at Tierra Vida had the opportunity to role play building their own city using Legos, a base map, and their imagination. City of Pasco’s Senior Planner Jacob Gonzalez, in collaboration with Pasco Councilman Ruben Alvarado (who is also the Tierra Vida Community Impact Manager), partnered to bring the activity to the 21st Century students. 

For one day, these kids became city planners and advocates for sectors within an imaginary city of their own. Student groups played the role of home builders, industrial developers, business developers and civic services, growing their city while keeping in mind the balance of homes, jobs and services. 

This activity was a wonderful collaboration geared at planting seeds of civic engagement in youth and giving a youth perspective of how kids relate to a city.
