Youth Homelessness 2017

The third annual Changing Systems Student Summit tackled the issue of youth homelessness in the St. Louis community in response to alarming community trends.

This event was designed, led, and facilitated by youth leaders with training in systems thinking/system dynamics, including students who have previously participated in previous Changing Systems Student Summits, group model building workshops, and internships with the Brown School Social System Design Lab.

The goal of this work was to provide students with a chance to learn and use systems thinking tools and apply them to social justice issues in their community.
