This is a challenging and scary time for everyone. Here are some of our favorite Sacramento-area resources to help with Covid-19 related problems and needs. If we can help, please give us a call!

The City of Sacramento’s Youth Division — part of the Department of Youth, Parks, & Community Enrichment — has created new virtual resources and activities for Sacramento’s young people to provide support during the COVID-19 outbreak and stay-at-home orders:

  • “Make It Monday” — Staff will share arts and crafts ideas and activities for elementary and middle school-aged children.

  • “Teen Talk Tuesday” — Civic Engagement staff, Summer @ City Hall participants and Sacramento Youth Commissioners will engage youth through Zoom discussions, and fun opportunities using memes, challenges and trivia.

  • “Youth Workforce Development Wednesday” — Youth Workforce staff will cover work readiness topics and share job postings and program information.

  • “Technology Thursday” — Staff will offer STEM activities for elementary and middle school-aged children.
