CITY Interns Present Solutions

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Civic Innovation Transforming Youngstown Internship Program wrapped up its second program year with each group of students presenting their findings and potential solutions for the problems they were given.

The program divided the interns into three groups of four and partnered them with the city’s Community Planning & Economic Development Department, Engineering & Construction Department or the Healthy Community Partnership.

“The city has the opportunity to take these solutions and use them for making a plan for improving sidewalks in the city, making a plan for improving our access to healthy foods and addressing micro-enterprises in the city and how to properly develop those from here on out,” says Daniel Bancroft, program manager for the Economic Action Group.
