Hope rises here.

We believe hopes can rise to become realities.  

We connect people with opportunities designed to foster hope.

We do this through our youth programs and through our community-based initiative: the Youth & Family Collective. 

PRO Youth and Families partners with schools, community organizations, and local governments to engage youth in OPPORTUNITIES that inspire HOPE. PRO Youth and Families’ offers a variety of direct service programs for youth and supports the Youth & Family Collective initiative that uplifts community organizations, drives collaboration, and fosters capacity building for responsive youth and family programs and services.

PRO’s direct service programs are offered in school and community-based settings and include:

  • Advocacy & Civic Engagement
  • Mentoring
  • Relationship Skills
  • Mental Wellness
  • Underage drinking, marijuana and tobacco prevention
  • Restorative justice


PRO Programs are culturally competent and are delivered with a social-justice lens. They provide safe spaces for youth to discover who they are, explore topics that impact their daily lives, cultivate skills, and develop into leaders and change-agents for the community.

PRO’s desire to drive more responsive services and programs for youth and families in Sacramento along with its belief in community collaboration led to its Youth and Family Collective (YFC) initiative. The YFC brings together organizations across Greater Sacramento to help youth, families, and nonprofits to learn, earn, and thrive. The YFC builds on existing community assets and works to foster connections and alignment of programs and services, support capacity building for community organizations, and drive collaborative programs. To date, over 70 organizations have engaged in YFC programs and projects.

Mission

PRO Youth and Families' mission is to inspire, educate, and mobilize young people to build a healthier future for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Our vision is that young people recognize their value, advocate for issues they care about, be engaged citizens, and know how to create and sustain healthy relationships.

Needs

Over the past two years, PRO Youth & Families has demonstrated the agility to quickly respond to the needs of youth and community partners in the wake of the pandemic. These creative and innovative solutions are forged from over four decades of delivering youth development programs in the Sacramento region.

You can be a #HopeDealer on Big Day of Giving. Your donation helps us meet the growing demand for our youth programs and collaborative work with other organizations through the Youth & Family Collective initiative.

One powerful example: In the spring of 2020, the PRO team moved quickly to engage community partners to design and implement a twenty-hour virtual youth mental health training called Mental Wellness Champions. Over the past two years, Mental Wellness Champions has been delivered to hundreds of youth, teachers, and youth program leaders across Sacramento and Northern California, and demand for the program continues to grow.

PRO is dedicated to working to bolster the capacity of other community-based organizations in the Youth & Family Collective to fulfill their individual missions in serving the community.
