The Youth Coordinating Board, a multi-jurisdictional group that works to improve the quality of life for the city's youth, is hosting a special event Jan. 20 at the General Mills campus to share a new report card taking stock of how youth are doing in Minneapolis.

The 2010 Call to Action and 25th anniversary event will also outline ways the community can get more involved in efforts to improve the lives of young people in the city. 

Art Rolnick, senior vice president and director of research for the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, will be the featured speaker. Other featured guests include Mayor R.T. Rybak, former mayors Sharon Sayles Belton and Don Fraser, members of the Minneapolis Youth Congress and U.N.L. Drill & Dance Performing Arts.

The Youth Coordinating Board formed in 1985. Participants include the City of Minneapolis, Hennepin County, the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board, the Minneapolis Public Library and the Minneapolis Public Schools.

The public is invited to the event scheduled for 7:15 to 9 a.m. More information is available at ycb.org.
