CCCS Partners Excited to Work with Youth Leadership Institute to Support Youth Civic Empowerment


We’re excited to announce that CCCS Racial Equity Action Subcommittee partners have selected Youth Leadership Institute (YLI) to build out and implement a pilot Civic Empowerment Training Program focused on youth ages 15-25 from underserved communities.  The purpose of this program is to strengthen the capacity of young people to engage in local policymaking and electoral processes as a strategy for increasing the political representation and power of underrepresented communities to advance racial equity in San Mateo County. YLI brings a wealth of experience in youth development and local policy advocacy and organizing efforts. Stay tuned for the roll-out of this program to begin Fall 2021.   For more information, please contact Erika Rincon, Community Health Planner at
