CITY101: Housing

  • Westside Boys & Girls Club (map)

Participants are exposed to the reality of housing in our region. With
a community expert, participants learn how to access and utilize city
resources in order to rent an apartment, set up utilities, and understand
their rights as a tenant.

A guest from a local housing advocacy and/or city employment
assistance agency come to lead an activity

Participants work in small groups to identify a local rental listing to
use for the purposes of the activity. Participants calculate the required
income in order to rent the unit and remain financial stable, and list
items required in order to apply as a prospective tenant.
