Invitation to CFCI Youth Action Workshop and a Chance for Youth to Win a FREE Laptop!

The Mayor's Office of Education has connected with over 600+ youth, service providers, parents and community members through the community assessment process and completed the CFCI situational analysis to evaluate the state of children's rights in the city.

After hearing youth voices and evaluating the experiences facing youth in Houston, the following issue areas rose to the top:

  • Improving access to mental health resources
  • Youth's lack of trust in police officials and not feeling respected by adults around them.
  • Lack of accessibility to resources including healthy food, youth programs and play and leisure spaces/activities.

During the CFCI Youth Action workshop NEXT Tuesday, October 19th, 2021, youth will discuss ways to improve these issues and select the most important issue to focus on for the upcoming CFCI Local Action Plan.

Youth who participate will be entered in a raffle to win a FREE laptop or a bluetooth speaker. In order to receive Zoom link for meeting youth must RSVP at

Youth voices and idea are imperative in the process of making Houston a child friendly city and we hope we can count on your support to spread the word among the amazing youth you serve.
