VACAVILLE YOUTH ROUNDTABLE FUND

Established: Feb 22, 2002

The Vacaville Youth Roundtable (YRT) was established in November 1991 when community leaders and citizens, concerned about youth issues, met to share information and resources.

YRT serves as a clearinghouse and forum for discussions of community youth issues as well as a 'think tank" for research and development of programs that are operated by other entities, such as a City department, School District, or community-based organization.

Participants include representatives from the City of Vacaville, area school districts, County departments, local businesses, churches, and community-based health organizations. Funding for most projects come from federal, state, or foundation grants; donations from the business community; and local government budgets.

The YRT supports the development of families and the role they play in nurturing positive behaviors among their members; promotes and reflects cultural diversity and supports self-esteem, personal responsibility, and healthy behaviors among youth.

The YRT has developed programs to engage youth and foster their initiative and leadership in developing new programs and activities. The YRT provides a vehicle through which the voice of youth can influence the health and well-being of the community.
