Last Friday was the kickoff event for the Community Involvement and Youth Leadership Internship with 32 youth between the ages of 14-19 years old participating. The Kick Off was a collaboration among many of CAC’s Family and Youth Services’ (FYS) programs and was also supported by Children's Services staff.  We cleared out the parking lot at the Chapel regional office in Santa Maria and had a variety of games, food and our very own Saul Serrano DJ-ing. 

The internship project will offer youth at risk/in risk the activities and leadership opportunities needed for personal growth and to enhance their resumes in order to make a positive impact on their community.  

Some of the activities and opportunities include:  *Participation on the FYS Youth Advisory Board to assist in providing input and direction to program efforts *Promotion amongst peers of 2-1-1 Santa Barbara *Involvement in youth services meetings to provide a youth voice at the table *Identification of a community improvement activity, taking it from planning to completion *Participation in focus groups to identify what is working and what can be improved for youth in Santa Maria*A culminating youth forum to provide the input gathered to youth-serving professionals with the goal of  enhancing efficiency and collaboration.
