Back to School Closet Event
On Saturday September 8th, the San Pablo Youth Commission and the Youth, School & Community Partnerships Division hosted the 8th Back to School Closet Event at Davis Park. During this event the San Pablo Youth Commissioners gave back to the community. San Pablo residents were able to select FREE gently used clothes (all ages), shoes, toys, school supplies, sports equipment, accessories, and participate in a Health and Education Resource Fair, sponsored by Kaiser Permanente and West County Reads. The event also included a jump rope contest, for a chance to win new backpacks full of school supplies, and a drawing for the chance to win gently used bicycle, scooters, skateboards, and more! This year, the event supported 284 youth and families in need. The next Back to School Closet Event will be held on September 7th, 2019.
The Youth Summit is an opportunity for youth to bring positive change for their generation and the next. During the summit, students had the chance to be involved in fun workshops. Currently our San Pablo Youth Commissioners are in the process of planning their 8th Annual Youth Summit, and it will be held tentatively in March 2019. Please check back for more information.
