Elevate Youth Solano
Elevate Youth Solano (EYS) is a dynamic collection of young people who understand that their voices and perspectives matter in building communities that are healthy, safe, and supportive of their unique needs. This youth-led, adult-guided, school-based program equips high school youth with skills and tools to investigate community issues that matter to them and design projects or campaigns to address those issues. Youth learn about collaboration, communication, leadership, and community problem-solving. These young people are working toward a society that just, fair, inclusive, tolerant, and reflective of their values. Participates can be nominated to serve as Elevate Youth Solano Scholars with up to $1500 stipends to address social determinants within Solano County.
There is something sublime in the youth who possesses the spirit of boldness and fearlessness who has proper confidence in his ability to do and dare.
