The Young Placemakers (YP) is currently accepting applications!

Good morning ESUHSD

My friends at the City of San Jose PRNS wanted me to share with you this great opportunity for high school students in San Jose.

The Young Placemakers (YP) is currently accepting applications!

 This opportunity will empower youth to identify neglected spaces within San José and implement their own placemaking “activation”. An “activation” is an event that is creatively organized with the intention of bringing public activity into a given space (i.e. a park, a street, a building, etc.). As a participant, you will learn more about the theories behind placemaking, learn about the process that goes into organizing activations, and gain professional skills (i.e. marketing, event production, and budget management) along the way. 

There is no cost to participate in Young Placemakers. If requested, you may receive community service hours and letters of recommendation. Equal consideration will be given to all applicants who meet the requirements listed below. To apply to become a Young Placemaker, please complete the application and submit by January 31st, 2017 by 5:00 PM.


  • Applicant must currently live in San José.
  • Applicant must currently be enrolled in and attending high school (public, private, or charter).
  • Applicant must be able to commit to all meetings (see Time Commitment) and any additional meetings required the week of the YP activation.

  • With staff support and guidance, selected participants will create and implement a marketing strategy, recruit volunteers, and coordinate the logistics for the activation.
  • With staff support and guidance, selected participants will manage and run the final activation.


  • Selected participants must be available to meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday from the date of selection through June 30, 2017.
  • Selected participants may be required to attend additional meetings the week of the final activation (which will be scheduled between June 21st and June 30th.)
  • Parents/guardians will be required to attend an orientation with youth who are selected for the program on Wednesday, February 15th at 6:00pm.
  • If a participant misses more than two (2) consecutive meetings without notification, their placement will be re-evaluated and may be subject to termination (at which time any service hours and/or letters of recommendation may be revoked).
  • Up to two (2) excused absences may be allowed if the lead advisor is notified 48 hours in advance. Excuses must be valid.

Qualified candidates will be contact by phone or e-mail to schedule an interview date and time within 1-2 weeks of the application deadline. Interviews for selected candidates will be scheduled on Thursday, February 9th and Friday, February 10th between 5:30pm and 7:30pm.
