To connect our work with communities across Oregon, the Youth Development Division (YDD) and Youth Development Council (YDC) is seeking community input on our 2023-2025 Community Investment budget, process, and priorities. Through this community engagement process, YDD is committed to further aligning our budget, processes, and funding opportunities towards the success of our mission to support Oregon youth and communities statewide.     
Beginning late October 2022  through early December 2022, YDD will be holding 10 In-person Community Conversations throughout the state, followed by a statewide virtual engagement in mid-December 2022. Our goal is to learn and gain insight through locally based conversations with Juvenile Departments, local officials, School Districts, Educational Service Districts (ESDs), and Youth Serving Organizations within the communities.
