Prioritizing Our Youth

Every child has a right to a strong start, and when we protect that right, we see clear results.  We can see the undeniable benefits of strong support for children and youth in the outcomes of those who receive this strong support. Better success in school. Better access to work experience. Better participation in arts and culture. Better lifetime earnings.  We also see the benefits in the absence of negative outcomes like incarceration, teen pregnancy, homelessness, and joblessness. Our StrongStarts4All plan is predicated on a core value that every child has a right to a strong start in life and that every aspect of San Diego’s community improves over time when we fight to ensure that right.
