Youth Reinvestment Educational Summit 
NCYL is organizing an education summit to discuss youth development and pre-arrest diversion programming in California. The summit is in response to state’s appropriation of $37.3 million dollars for the Youth Reinvestment Grant, to improve outcomes for youth accused of low-level or status offenses by increasing the availability of trauma-informed, and community and health-based interventions in lieu of arrest and incarceration. The Summit will be held on February 25th, 2019 from 10:00-11:30 in Room 4202 of the California State Capitol in Sacramento. The education summit which is open to the public, will consist of three panels to frame the needs of youth and communities for programming, discuss local programs that are effective, and share the how-to of system partnership and collaboration.
