Inspire Academy Maps Watts

High school students at Inspire Academy created a map Pedestrian Bridge of some community assets within walking distance of the school in Watts. Community asset mapping is a great tool for educators, neighborhood groups and community organizations to inventory the places they live in. Even if we know what’s in our neighborhoods, seeing it on a map can help us understand where there might be more opportunities for small businesses, youth organizations, green space and more. Check out the work these teens did in just a few hours. None of them had previously ever mapped anything before. They also took the photos.
