Project Plans & Objectives
The Stockton Youth Self-Determination Project is proud to join efforts #ElevateYouthCA to bring healing and culturally responsive wraparound care to youth through peer to peer support, transformative circles and community organizing activities.
Youth Ambassadors will be paid $20/hour for 20 hours/month of work. This covers your time to participate in activities, to receive training and support, and when you are ready, to lead your own community projects which you will have the opportunity to own, and generate income from.
Youth will co-construct community agreements and build Leadership and opportunities to address substance use disorder while recognizing the history of unjust criminalization and importance of community health.
We will work with youth to host monthly community events based on their interests, where the youth can earn income and take over ownership of the event over time.
Every 3 months, will host Block Party's with basketball and handball tournaments, and a youth cypher contest open to all youth in the community, with cash prizes for 1st 2nd and 3rd place.
