The Sacramento START program helps children throughout the Sacramento region gain knowledge, expand their universe outside neighborhood boundaries, provide opportunities to grow and flourish, build and develop trust and create and fulfill dreams. With this in mind, the program promotes youth development and builds on individual student assets. Positive youth development promotes social and emotional growth and greater attachment to school which, in turn, translates into enhanced learning opportunities during the regular school day. The Sacramento START program includes the following three components: homework and assistance, enrichment (literacy), and recreation. The START program also includes a supper and/or snack program.
