At graduation, either working in teams or individually, participants present a project based on what they’ve learned throughout the eight week program and propose what they would do to improve our community. Past projects have included addressing wrong-way drivers on Palisades Blvd, creating an arts district in the downtown, recognizing outstanding students, enhancing public transportation services for employees who don’t live in town, and more.
