What will the New Fund for Children and Youth accomplish?
The New Fund for Children and Youth strives to advance the best practices of successfully executed campaigns across California and the nation, where dedicated youth funding streams have been secured. Modeled after the successes of Margaret Brodkin’s, organization, Funding the Next Generation, coalitions like those in Marin, Solano, Napa, Sacramento, Richmond, San Francisco and Alameda have engineered systems-changing ballot measures towards benefiting youth. While processes towards securing resources has varied; Oakland, San Francisco and Richmond have all won long-sought victories, leveraging opportunities along the way. Their successes are the playbook for the New Fund for Children and Youth’s activities as we build momentum to create a measure to secure a dedicated fund for youth. Our goal is to increase public funding that supports children and youth ages 0-24. Funding may be used to sustain or create services including but not limited to childcare, after school programs, workforce development, health care, housing, mental health, recreation, parent support and community schools.
