About Us

PLACE stands for Planning and Leadership Across City Environments. Our unique program for high school students from across the region, run by Catlin Gabel School in partnership with the greater Portland community, focuses on how we relate to our urban environment through smart planning and effective leadership. During this dynamic, interdisciplinary, and experiential program, you will learn from the city’s best minds as they grapple with decisions that shape Portland’s future. During PLACE you and a talented group of students will meet with sustainability experts, urban designers, and city leaders and work on planning projects.
