My work with Y-PLAN helped me realize I can be an advocate for change and help create equity. As students, our voices can and will be heard. / Y-PLAN Sacramento Student

Sacramento City Unified School District’s (SCUSD) Linked Learning office has driven the PLAN Sacramento work since 2015, in partnership with The California Endowment (TCE). After a pilot at two schools, CC+S expanded the Y-PLAN across five high schools and seven diverse career pathways, in Luther Burbank, Carver, Rosemont, Hiram Johnson and Health Professions high schools. Through these projects, students have partnered with WalkSacramento, the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA), the Mayor’s Office, the Planning Department, and the Capitol Collaborative for Race and Equity. Their proposals have brought lasting changes both in and out of school, from improved bus stops to a new college and career center, while helping to fulfill the SCUSD mission to prepare students to be "globally competitive lifelong learners, prepared to succeed in a career and higher education institution of their choice to secure gainful employment and contribute to society."

Our experience working with Y-PLAN was captivating. It taught us important skills that will benefit us in the future... Being a part of HMS and Y-PLAN made us aware of the serious health issues affecting our community. Y-PLAN helped guide HMS students to come up with solutions to address these issues and improve health in our community. / Students from Health and Medical Sciences Academy
