Middle Schoolers Conduct Neighborhood Audit to Better Community

Students at Northwest Middle School are preparing to make their communities better by conducting a neighborhood audit. 

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Students at Northwest Middle School are preparing to make their communities better by conducting a neighborhood audit.

Rebekka Brosemer’s 8th-grade students teamed up with the Community Health Council and the University of Kansas for the project.

“The very cool thing about these kids is they're leaders and they don't know it,” Brosemer said. “So let's give them a chance to become the leaders they should be and that are hidden.”

The middle schoolers looked at roads, curbs, sidewalks, and streetlights.
