Youth & Family Collective (YFC) convened over 100 community leaders and changemakers on Monday, January 29, for our first-ever “Call to Action” – a gathering to exchange insights, celebrate the launch of YFC, and commit ourselves to continuing actions necessary to empower nonprofits in serving the public.
Hosted generously by Stones Gambling Hall in Citrus Heights, our “Call to Action” convened the executive directors of all nineteen of YFC’s member nonprofits, as well as most of their board members, along with government officials, business executives, technologists, entrepreneurs, and grantors and other funders.
“Government can’t do it alone,” said Sacramento County Supervisor Phil Serna, addressing the summit. “When great organizations come together like the Youth & Family Collective, we can all do a better job of serving our community. We look forward to working with YFC to make new, tangible, and unprecedented progress in uplifting youth and families.”
Sharing insights and ideas to discuss what we can do to move YFC forward, participants also celebrated the commitments that we have made to each other’s success, and called upon one another – and the broader community – to continue our collective journey of innovation.
This “Call to Action” embodies a culmination of nearly one year of discussions, outreach, research, and modeling necessary to achieve this one-of-a-kind critical mass among nonprofits agreeing to take collect action. YFC is now moving forward with more energy and commitment than ever.
