SPRING 2018 >> COMMUNITY DESIGN APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
The Spring 2018 Community Design Apprenticeship Program: Mobility For All By All is a 10 week program in which Black and Latinx local college and university students, known as Community Design Apprentices, will explore the following essential question with residents of the Kingshighway and/or Fairground neighborhoods of St. Louis: “What would public transit do to improve your life?”
The Community Design Apprentices will train in Equity-Centered Community Design to (1) examine how historical and systemic oppression has impacted transit and mobility in Kingshighway/Fairground, (2) conduct a community audit to understand the impact that transit, or lack thereof, has had on resident quality of life, and (3) (re)imagine how public transit access could improve quality of life.
The Community Design Apprenticeship Program is a Collaborative Community Project of Mobility For All By All, a multi-stakeholder initiative which aims to co-design ideas and approaches to improving local transit with community residents. Apprentices who successfully complete the program will be eligible to receive up to a $300 stipend. All program sessions and events are mandatory unless otherwise discussed with program facilitators.
