Project Cornerstone

Project Cornerstone is working to mobilize our entire community to shift from reacting to children and youth as problems to connecting with them so they thrive. As a catalyst for change, Project Cornerstone aims to ensure that every aspect of our diverse community - individuals, businesses, community organizations, schools and government - understand and embrace the fact that interacting with young people is important... and that every interaction makes a difference.

Healthy Behaviors Initiative

Improving Children's Health through Afterschool Programs

Childhood obesity is ranked as the #1 health concern for children in the U.S. today and has reached epidemic proportions. The Healthy Behaviors Initiative addresses the serious health problems facing students in low-income communities throughout California and most at risk of obesity. Through its work, Healthy Behaviors is demonstrating the important role that afterschool programs can play in improving the lives and health of these children and families by addressing the childhood obesity epidemic in the United States. Under the Initiative, afterschool programs are being transformed into environments that support and encourage healthy behaviors. Read more.
