The King County Youth Bill of Rights (KCYBOR) is a project to identify the wants and needs of children and youth, and guide leaders as they make decisions that affect the health, happiness, and hopes of young people in our region.
Our hope is that the KCYBOR is a youth-led, youth-inspired project to create policy that considers the voice of young people, when making decisions that impact children, youth, and young adults in our region. KCYBOR’s goal is to engage 3,000 youth voices in the project over the next 3 months. We absolutely need the support of community!
Click HERE to pledge.
Organizations and individuals can partner by pledging to engage youth and young adults (ages 5-24) by October 31, 2022.
Once you submit your pledge, the KCYBOR team will create a unique quick reference (QR) code and a link assigned specifically for you to share.
All participating organizations will be listed as partners in the endeavor.
The unique QR code and link will lead to a 3-minute questionnaire where participants are asked to “declare their rights” by sharing what important issues are confronting youth today, what they would like to see change, what are the greatest needs, and more.
Other Ways to Engage Young People in the Project
- VideoAsk – An interactive video and audio questionnaire where young people can provide their input in video, audio, or text format.
- Share Existing Survey Data – If you have surveyed young people in the past two years and are willing to share your findings with us, that is another way you can contribute.
- Host a Virtual or in-person listening session – If youth you are serving are gathering virtually and/or in person, invite our KCYBOR Task Force members and support team to host a listening session.
The KCYBOR team is also available to speak at youth conventions, summits, conferences, and more in King County.
The input phase for this project will end October 31, 2022. It will be followed by a ratification period where young people who have provided their contact information will be asked to prioritize the issues put forth by youth in King County and the Youth Bill of Rights Task Force. The final document will be drafted early 2023.
