The SBYC was reconvened in 2016 to collaboratively work on issues affecting our youth. The CVCC is chairing the coalition in partnership with San Ysidro Health Center. The Coalition provides a forum for collaborative networking and partnerships that creates and enhances effective youth programs.
Our mission is “to foster a healthy environment for youth and families in South Bay.” The Coalition’ work is around three objectives: 1: Increase awareness of youth issues. 2: Increase access and services to youth in South Bay, and 3: Build the capacity of providers to assist youth & families.
In 2017 we have begun a newsletter that is intended as a resource and tool that provides useful tips and information for youth providers. In addition we hosted two screening a “Resilience” film and a follow up discussion with school and community members on building resiliency on youth. The SBYC continues to gain momentum and has ambitious plan for the near future to continue to enhance partnerships and capacity building.
South Bay Youth Coalition meets monthly on the 4 th Thursday of the month at the CVCC Administration
