Community youth are more likely to experience negative life outcomes when they are not supported by their community. Programs have been developed to help them rise to their fullest potential through educational excellence and community asset building.
- Promote healthy youth and family initiatives to address positive outcomes for youth, education achievement, social emotional mental health and resource coordination
- Ensure youth are connected to positive, caring and reliable adults
- Increase opportunity, exposure, support, resources and coordination for non-traditional youth or those youth having difficulties at home, in school and in the community
Community Coalition Summer Initiatives offers opportunities for youth, in partnership with Champaign County Mental Health Board.
Increased employment opportunities provide a healthier outlet for all youth including those in school, high risk, and income eligible.
Ongoing activities offer opportunities for youth-led conversations and support for youth involved in incidents of community violence.
