Sacramento Creates Two Programs for Troubled Teens
The city of Sacramento is taking the problem of youth violence head on with two proactive programs designed to keep teens out of trouble.
This month, a director has been hired to run Sacramento's newly created Office of Youth Development, which will coordinate after-school programs, job internships and mentoring.
The city this month hired Lyn Corbett to fill the role of "youth czar" - someone who would coordinate myriad youth programs and whose sole job was meeting the needs of youngsters.
And, city officials also announced they are expanding a successful pilot truancy program at Luther Burbank High School to C.K. McClatchy and Inderkum high schools. It is hoped that the combination of these programs will help prevent bored youth from becoming troubled teens.
