From the time YTEC was
launched as a collaborative program and
through its growth, the program has continued to partner
with the SFUSD, Juvenile Justice System, the Public Health Department,
treatment providers, institutions of higher learning, and community
based organizations to ensure that YTEC youth receive the maximum
support to meet their needs. As a result, YTEC has received funding,
in-kind staffing and services from a wide range of sources, and has
achieved a great deal with minimal infrastructure.
As more youth choose to stay with YTEC throughout their high school
and transition to employment or further education, YTEC must continue
to grow and strengthen its services. Support from our current partners
alone will not be sufficient for this high quality program expansion – and,
in this economic climate, we cannot depend on continued government
funding at the current level. As a new 501c3 organization, YTEC must
reach out to individual donors and foundation and corporate partners
to invest in our growth and in the healthy future of YTEC youth.
YTEC receives funding
for drug courts and substance abuse programs through several city, state and federal agencies and grants.
