Catlin Gabel’s PLACE (People Leading Across City Environments) is a collection of programs that provide children and youth with opportunities to be more engaged citizens by making authentic, meaningful, real-world change in their communities. Open to all Portland-area students, PLACE programs offer opportunities to learn how cities function—and to have a voice in making them function better.
