Summer Program Recap
With CDC and county regulations in place, Youth N.O.W. served 
24 students from 12 different schools for four weeks of FUN! 
This summer, we had two separate in person sites for our middle school youth and a virtual platform for our high school students. All students received intensive academic support in various subjects and our on site students engaged in: biking, hiking, art, team building activities, music, and more! Our goal was to keep our students learning and involved in physical activity as they prepared for distance learning in the upcoming school year.
Students went on local field trips to Sierra Azul Nursery, Gizdich Ranch, Henry Cowell Redwoods, and Seacliff Beach. They had a blast on their bike rides with Community Bike Collective and were thankful for the gifted books from 25Books! They also got to meet our partners from United4Youth during our weekly Zoom sessions as they learned about local services and important life skills. On-going collaboration with the Second Harvest Food Bank and food prepared on site provided healthy and delicious meals during programming.
Although we weren't able to cross county limits and serve our usual 50+ students, we are thankful to have been able to provide a fun-filled, educational, and safe summer for these students. Lots of new friendships, experiences and personal growth were cultivated during our time together.
