Do you have an idea to make your community better? Do you want to put that idea into action?

If so, please consider applying to become a Champion for Change with One Region Forward’s Citizen Planning School! Through a series of evening workshops, homework, and teamwork over three months, Champions for Change learn how to turn ideas into action with practical tools, knowledge, and leadership skills.

Based on a match of talents and passions, Champions and University at Buffalo students will be placed in action planning teams. Champions also receive technical support through mentors in collaboration with UB’s School of Architecture and Planning.

How are citizens already helping to drive change across our region? Check out this video featuring the work of our past Champions for Change:
