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.
