About the Map

The ONE ABQ MOVE “Map of Enchantment” was created through a grant from the National Conference of Mayors received in 2020. The map is designed to meet the grant goal of fighting childhood obesity in a fun and creative way by encouraging kids, teens, and families to explore Route 66 in search of public art.

City of Albuquerque teen interns were the catalysts for the idea of these scavenger hunts. The interns were engaged in the facilitation and execution of the City’s Youth Connect program Teen Nights in the summer of 2019 and culminated their internship with a presentation on how to engage youth in Albuquerque. Due to the pandemic, plans for the map and scavenger hunts were slightly derailed, but Youth Connect is excited to launch this program in September 2022!
