Our Process


Discover Your Project

Envision City focuses on one project each year pivoted around a current community challenge or relevant problem. During the program, our members work together to develop unique solutions. To take a closer look at past Envision City challenges visit our project page.

Collaborate and Learn

Over a series of monthly workshops, we bring in passionate and experienced professionals including art teachers, urban planners, and civic leaders. Our facilitators are the backbone of Envision City and work to teach youth the intricate steps towards creating a community impact.

Impact your City!

Working with city councillors and architects, our mission every year is bring the ideas of young people into reality and construct our design. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”
