We connect youth with leadership classes and volunteer opportunities that focus on addressing core youth issues which include increased self-esteem and confidence and increased connections to caring adults. Through partnerships with civic, corporate, and community supporters, we have developed a program that works with young people and addresses three important areas:
Business Savvy: Building 21st century career development skills; having the ability to leverage opportunities with integrity and innovation, and learning to make good decisions through meaningful involvement and achieve results.
Social Conscience: Valuing the impact an individual and enterprise can have on the community. We provide resources and training to help young people find their voice, take action, and make an impact on vital community issues.
Collaborative Communication: Engaging others in an inclusive manner across teams, functions, and cultures; ability to leverage new and creative ways of communication. By having youth take on tasks, with the support and direction of professional mentors, participants navigate through roles in Research and Development, Logistics and Inventory, Finance and Administration, and Marketing and Promotions.
To integrate these three areas of development, Team California Youth Impact is organizing youth conferences and concerts throughout California to engage youth in leadership and event planning, while raising money for social causes in their communities.
We are providing youth with mentorship and support opportunities to assist them in finding academic achievement, career development opportunities, internships, and training.
