Department of Children and Youth - Community Forums

Community Forums - Save the Date!

Beginning Saturday, October 3rd through Wednesday, October 7th, the Richmond Department of Children and Youth (Department) will host four virtual community forums to receive input on how to invest MILLIONS in funding into programs and services for young people and families from birth to age 24. Your input will help develop a comprehensive, equitable investment plan that reflects community vision.

The Department was created in order to provide a sustainable funding stream for youth-serving organizations in Richmond and North Richmond. This will be done by providing grant funding to various organizations beginning in July 2021, as part of a 3-year grant cycle.

Come share YOUR voice, perspective, and experiences to help us better understand the needs of Richmond and North Richmond children, youth and their families. 

More information will be available soon on how you can register for the community forums.
