What has smC2C been working on?

The first step in charting our course was developing a data-driven understanding of youth wellbeing in Santa Monica. This led to a robust analysis of data related to youth wellbeing. The resulting Youth Wellbeing Report Card is used by smC2C partners to identify, prioritize, and implement strategies to address critical needs among youth and families in our community. Work to-date has focused on 2 critical points on the developmental spectrum: kindergarten readiness and Santa Monica's most vulnerable older youth. We also worked with RAND on an in-depth analysis of out-of-school programs in Santa Monica and recommendations.
