My Community My Vision


My Community, My Vision (MCMV) is a youth-driven placemaking partnership between the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) and Patronicity with a vision for connecting young people in Indiana to the places they live and allowing them the opportunity to make a positive impact in their communities. Cohorts of youth council students participate in a semester-long program focused on asset-based community development, stakeholder engagement, and placemaking. Over the course of four months, students develop an idea for a place-based community project, determine the project’s scope and budget, and fundraise for their project utilizing Patronicity’s crowdfunding website. Teams that meet a fundraising goal by the end of the semester will be eligible to receive a dollar-for-dollar match of IHCDA grant funds to contribute to their project.

Student youth council teams, alongside their foundation or local unit of government sponsor, will utilize these funds to see their project—whether a trail, park, plaza, mural, or other concept—built in their town or city to be a place for their community members to enjoy for years to come.
