Focus Areas

We Focus On:

  • Restorative Justice: The Peace Promotion team is working to establish a Restorative Community Conferencing juvenile justice demonstration project to support youth offender, victim, and community reconciliation that repairs harm to the community and diverts youth from traditional juvenile detention and probation processes.
  • Healthy School Meals: Run by the Food Justice team, this resident-initiated campaign tries to increase the availability of locally grown fruits and vegetables in school meals, and to provide for healthy halal menu options that allow students to eat in accordance with their religious beliefs.
  • Safe Parks and Recreational Opportunities: Youth-led campaigns secured park land and approximately $2 million in funding to build two new skate facilities, and to expand opportunities for Muslim girls to engage in physical activities like swimming. Other community campaigns run by the Youth Council workgroup include increased safety in and utilization of Teralta and Colina Parks.
  • Youth Transit Passes: The Improving Transportation in City Heights team collaborates to secure support and funding for the no-cost Youth Opportunity Pass, which removes transportation barriers to accessing school, jobs, and other activities, a common problem in the neighborhood with the lowest rates of automobile ownership in the region.
