What We Do

Community Connections

Creating a support network for youth with our partners

Focusing on the needs of youth within the Sacramento region is our first priority. Our community partners make it possible to extend our resources and make a greater impact.  Here are a few resources we recommend:

Our Community Partners

  • offers COVID-19 specific resources for families, including high need areas of relief such as childcare, food relief, unemployment, and other assistance programs available in Sacramento.

  • We are proud of our close partnership with the City of Sacramento, which has allowed us to bring Club programs to neighborhoods in need. The Club is active in the Mayor's Gang Prevention Task Force. The Club has also worked closely with City Council Members Angelique Ashby and Larry Carr to bring Club programs to their respective districts.
