Jackbox provides an interactive platform for folks to connect virtually while in person -- sharing ideas, creativity, and laughs. Let's utilize engaging mixed media games (like Jackbox or other) to collect ideas for PB. If we partner with Jackbox or other similar providers, we could create a digital toolkit to share with PB processes everywhere -- they could access these new games and utilize in assemblies!

A training portal or series -online, in person and/or via Skype, to train folks across the country to be able to start and lead PB discussions in their communities. This could include a series of trainings and webinars, and printed collateral for the new trainers to give to interested PB folks.

People are working hard to bring PB to funders, communities and institutions. It makes it easier to have the same messaging and legitimacy when we have some cool and uniform swag. It also allows our amplifiers to get excited about working with us while doing the work. We need to outfit our movement.

Convince congress that all student college debt should be discharged allowing that money to flow into the economy, increasing demand and employment in housing, manufacturing, agriculture and retail. Without the burden of $500 to $5,000 monthly payments, these young Americans will spend those funds on housing, furniture, clothing, transportation, groceries and entertainment, stimulating the economy like nothing else.

The PB in schools video is great, but it's very focused on high schools. As more elementary and middle schools get interested in PB, we need a short video to show how it works and why school leaders should try it. It should also show how PB can be used for parent engagement. This could maybe be a new version of the general PB video, or a separate one for lower grade schools. [idea came from another school parent]

PBP is beginning to focus on schools and wants to include more young people on its board and advisory board. This will allow the organization to be guided and shaped by some of the key folks that PBP is designed to empower.
In order to set up a functional pipeline, I believe that we need support and resources for young people that are balancing this with other responsibilities.
It would be great to work out what this could cover with the team.

One of the biggests downfalls of scaling PB is having excellent facilitators in every space, but what if we could develop tools to empower ANYONE to be an excellent facilitaor? Meet the dinnertime democracy toolkit - a toolkit that connects to any phase of PB and makes it easy for folks to gather and talk democracy. The toolkit will feature simple prompting discussion questions, opportunities to work on refining ideas and instructions on how to submit or reecord an idea for submission. While no two PB processes are the same, the process for ideating and weighing choices around community needs are the same. I envision this tool focusing on those elements, but offering instructions and prompts to make conversation and open dialogue more approachable.
