The Youth & Family Collective (YFC) is proud to partner with the City of Sacramento for #SacYouthWorks Fall
Join us in congratulating 41 organizations who were selected for #SacYouthWorks Fall funding. More than just a funding opportunity, the Youth & Family Collective (YFC) is building a network of organizations to share expertise, tools, data collection, and training, while learning how to use #SacYouthWorks as a model for future collaborative efforts.
#SacYouthWorks Fall, launched October 1, will serve 855 youth and young adults, ages 12 -24. In exchange for 40 hours of service and work-based learning opportunities, each participant will receive a stipend of up to $500 while supporting the City’s COVID-19 relief efforts. Participating organizations will also receive operating funds to support their work at a time when demand for services is at an all-time high.
#SacYouthWorks Summer brought 32 partner organizations together to provide work-based learning opportunities and economic relief for 400 high school youth in the City of Sacramento. Participants engaged in over 16,000 hours of training and community service projects. They learned job skills and helped other youth and vulnerable City residents overcome isolation, and get information, food, protective equipment, school supplies, and other COVID-19 resources. Each youth received a $400 stipend which gave them economic relief when youth have struggled to find job opportunities due to the pandemic.
The YFC is proud to partner with the City again to serve more youth and young adults this fall. Congratulations to our fall partners!
