Youth Funding/Sac Kids First
Youth Forward serves as the coordinating entity for Sac Kids First, Sacramento's largest grassroots coalition. We are organizing to win greater investments in youth services in the budget of the city of Sacramento and to increase budget accountability for how the city invests in youth. During the summer of 2020, we were successful in winning over $9 million in new investments in youth jobs, youth mental health and other youth programming. We believe that our city must make a greater investment in prevention and in youth to increase the overall safety and wellbeing of the Sacramento community.
