Data is important for information and improvement/  As part of our program, we collect pre and post event survey information from participating youth, parents, and event personnel in order to better serve the needs of our community. We consistently see a growth in information learned by our youth and many express that they are more connected with the agencies which serve them. 

If you'd like to become a volunteer or donate to our program, please contact Lisa at or phone at (530) 318-5356.
