Our Mission

The purpose of the Sacramento Youth Center (SYC) is to provide youth with tools and life changing experiences to overcome their personal and socio-economic obstacles. SYC accomplishes this by providing high quality, relationship based and empowerment driven youth development services to under-served youth in Sacramento. We aim to develop at-risk, immigrant, and refugee youth, into outstanding individuals and contributing citizens through the holistic, personal, and caring approach to youth development that the SYC employs.
