MISSION

We at san diego youth coalition advocate for smart and effective crime-reduction strategies that focus on prevention and alter the social and environmental conditions that foster youth crime. Through our arts education, SKILLS TRAINING, and public safety campaigns; we reduce youth violence AND PROMOTE EMPATHY AND UNDERSTANDING by developing innovative prevention programs. additionally, WE push for public investments to transform parks into safe and healthy public places in our communities. Our work to empower everyday residents to come together, find solutions, and lead the change in their community is at the core of this approach.

 
 

“ALL YOUTH SHOULD HAVE EQUAL ACCESS TO RESOURCES LIKE EDUCATION, HEALTH, AND SAFETY DESPITE ECONOMICS. PERIOD.”

COMMUNITY

The sheer size of San Diego and its dense population of over one million residents can dilute the impact of positive changes and community victories. We are exploring ways to build our power by focusing our grassroots organizing and crime prevention strategies in targeted neighborhoods. The goal is to bring transformative changes that residents could see and feel. Utilizing a place-based approach, plant seeds of change, from which transformation can flourish across San Diego.

We recognize that transforming our communities requires building alliances committed to advancing equity.  We are a movement of people using our power to create a better future for San Diego. We are determined to build a San Diego where all people are valued, regardless of where you were born, the color of your skin, who you love, or how much money you make. We believe the way to expand and strengthen democracy is by building collective power and uniting communities. Now is the time for US to stand for a different future. Together we are using our power as the majority to build stronger, safer, and healthier communities for everyone.
