The Youth Design Team (YDT) is a Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board pilot program for the East of The River Park Master Plan. It employs high school students to participate in the planning of neighborhood parks in NE and SE Minneapolis. During the year-long process, these youth work with MPRB planning staff, design consultants, local artists, and community members to help bring important youth perspectives and creative ideas to the process and park plans. Youth Design Team participants went through a competitive application process, are 15-19 years old, live or attend school in Northeast or Southeast Minneapolis, and are interested in professional fields in art or landscape architecture, community-based research, environmental design and park planning. The YDT has worked on all stages of the plan including site inventory and analysis, community data collection, data analysis, and park planning and design. The YDT has had hands-on experience learning concepts, building skills, and gaining professional experience, all while helping to impact the future of parks in their communities.
