Review for Sheriff's Community Impact Program, Sacramento, CA, USA
The Sheriff's Community Impact Program (SCIP) is a Sacramento area non-profit that saw its beginnings providing positive experiences for cops and kids through a variety of recreational, educational, and athletic activities. As SCIP approaches its 10th-year of serving Sacramento County youth, SCIP has become more focused in delivering unique programs that target our most vulnerable youth.
SCIP has a collaborative mindset when working with our Coalition for a Safe & Healthy Arden Arcade, and the Project Lifelong program. This collaboration allows for a continuum of connectivity. We know that a sense of connection to one's community is a key factor in providing a safe, thriving community. SCIP is also a part of the Youth and Family Collective (YFC) -- a ground-breaking movement comprised of over twenty non-profits. This collective expands SCIP'S capacity, allowing us to deliver not just programs to keep our youth busy and out of trouble, but truly learn, earn, and thrive. The YFC supports SCIP'S mission to foster productive citizens by engaging youth in dynamic community programs.
Having spent almost 15-years in law enforcement before retiring in 2017, it is such an honor and privilege to be a part of a team of passionate people who believe wholeheartedly the significance and impact of the work we do.
Parents (or anyone for that matter) who may be searching for a meaningful youth program that will not just keep your kid out of trouble, but teach them leadership and other pro-social skills, SCIP/CSHAA and Project Lifelong are great programs to connect with.
