SGA works within all of the systems that affect youth--school, family, peer and community – to build consistency and support. Specifically, we provide services in the following areas:
Community Schools Initiative
SGA secures out-of-school ?me programming and social services at community schools to meet the specific needs of youth and their families. These neighborhood schools become the anchors in their respective communities, with resources to improve the success of young people, remove barriers to learning, and to strengthen the family and the en?re community.
