California Center for Civic Participation
As a nonprofit, nonpartisan program, our mission is to engage youth in the democratic process by using sound Youth Development principles. This is accomplished by providing opportunities for middle and high school youth to participate in civic education, leadership, and service programs that directly connect to local, state, and federal issues.
The HEAC Youth Leadership Project/SYBOP is a program of our policy leadership series with a focus on training youth to be active at both local and state levels to promote healthy communities and prevent childhood obesity.
