The South County Youth Coalition would like to take this opportunity to gratefully acknowledge and thank the members of the San Luis Obispo County Community Foundation and the Janssen Youth & Youth Sports Fund for their generous donation to our organization.
This partnership will assist in expanding an existing program, Youth In Action, which was developed and is coordinated by the San Luis Obispo County Probation Department. Youth In Action is a gang-prevention program that works with at-risk teen boys. With the funding from the Janssen Youth & Youth Sports Fund, an existing sub-component of Youth In Action — The Roots — will be further developed, allowing the participants to learn pro-social behavior skills through outdoor exploration and mentoring.
All involved are excited and honored that we were entrusted with funding to further the goals of the South County Youth Coalition, the San Luis Obispo Probation Department, the San Luis Obispo County Community Foundation and the Janssen Youth & Sports Fund.
