Youth and Community PopUps

Project Background

Established in January 2019, Youth and Community PopUps provide Sacramento youth and their families with fun community-building activities, led by community partners throughout the city’s historically under-resourced neighborhoods. The initiative’s youth-led focus includes on-the-job experience through employment and paid internships, and gives Sacramento’s youth the opportunity to design and operate the PopUps events.

Youth and CommunityPop Ups are funded by the City of Sacramento, managed by The Center at SierraHealth Foundation and operated by 24 community partner organizations. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the PopUps program includes weekly virtual events for youth throughout Sacramento.
