Featured Programs

The Collaborative is looking for innovative programs that help increase high school graduation rates and (or) support local schools, to give a report at our Collaborative meetings.  We want to educate others about the work you are doing to assist in replicating successful programs.  If you have a program that others should be aware of, please let us know by e-mailing a quick overview to impact@uwccr.org.  One low/no cost program that will be featured at the September meeting is the Marginalized Youth Collaborative. See below.

Marginalized Youth Collaborative

The Marginalized Youth Collaborative (MYC) is a network of service providers dedicated to supporting young people in Sacramento. MYC provides a volunteer community safety net where youth and their problems are identified and resolved.  With available resources such as emergency shelter, mental health services, and substance abuse counseling, the collaborative can help youth develop life skills and get back on track.  Come find out how to start one in your community.

Partnership Opportunities

The Collaborative is also looking for new projects or existing projects that want to expand.  The Collaborative will be hosting an opportunity for you to look for new partners and discuss the possibilities for working together on funding opportunities.  We have one project that is outlined below.  If you are interested in possibly being a partner in this project or have a project you want to feature,  please send your information to impact@uwccr.org.

Youth Engagement Project

The Collaborative is looking for partners in Amador, El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties that would like to seek funding for a youth project which would provide peer-to-peer education on the graduation crisis.  Youth will educate other youth on the graduation crisis and collect input from the youth on how to decrease the dropout rate.  Youth will analyze the data and make recommendations to local school administrations and political groups.
