Welcome to Oregon!
Even at 150, Oregon should be forever young. We’re offering projects specifically for our youth – you know, those who don’t need coffee to feel energetic. Young leaders will go online to collaboratively create a vision of Oregon’s future, rehabilitate public parks, and actively participate in a policy-development process that will be carried out for the next 50 years. Our past is full of unique voices. Let’s nurture new ones for the future.
