The Sandbox is a monthly networking and professional development gathering. The original goals of those meetings were to bring youth development consultants together to increase collaboration and reduce competition, and to share resources. Since the first meeting, the group has grown and our focus has shifted to also include other youth development practitioners, community members, teaching artists and advocates.

Leadership Lab is a project with Michele Martin of The Bamboo Project.
