Housing co-ops are a great place to raise kids! Check out an example of what one coop is doing to actively engage youth in their community.

If you’ve got curious kids at your co-op who are keen to roll up their sleeves in the pursuit of a good time—and maybe learn a thing or two in the process—then look no further than Bounty Housing Co-operative’s newest committee.

Moving at a blistering pace, the kids’ social sub-committee has already been created, established voting rules, created a leadership structure, discussed budget concerns, and planned and executed their first event. No surprise that the December “random party” was a wild success, delivering lessons in democratic participation, co-operation, and even the limits of pizza and candy consumption.
