I started the Sandbox Collective in April 2013, as a monthly forum for youth development consultants. The original goals of those meetings were to bring consultants together to increase collaboration and reduce competition, and to share resources. You can find and download resources that are used and shared at the monthly gatherings on our website.
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.
The Sandbox serves as a space for professional development and networking and meets the 2nd Thursday of every month.
