Youth Development

Adopted unanimously by Sacramento City Council, the Citywide Youth Development Campaign Plan (“Plan”) is intended to guide the City in the design, operations, and evaluation of its children and youth programs. The City’s vision is that all Sacramento youth are valued and reach their fullest potential.

The Plan lays out a set of goals that the City will strive to achieve through its own programs and through strategic partnerships.

The Plan provides that all City-operated and City-funded programs will be aligned under this unified vision and youth development framework. The City will undertake a concerted effort to increase the quality of children and youth programs it provides and funds in order to have a greater impact on the future success of program participants in school, career, and life.

Additionally, the City is acutely aware of the need to deploy resources in low-income communities and will work to incorporate a set of social justice principles as part of this Plan.
