Roadmap to the Future

All In! Sessions for Children and Youth

Yolo County is creating a Roadmap to the Future for Yolo County Children and Youth, and we need to hear from YOU! 

Our first round of the All In! for Children and Youth Sessions was hosted from February 27-March 3 across Yolo County. Over 5 consecutive nights, we hosted a session in each Supervisorial districts in Yolo County. In all, 370 people joined us! That is a huge success for the Roadmap to the Future and a testament to the value of the initiative.

The second round of the All In! for Children and Youth Sessions are currently scheduled for May 2023. Complete this brief interest survey if you would like to be notified when the dates for the sessions in Yolo County have been announced.

Service Provider Survey

The Roadmap to the Future project is asking any person, agency, or organization that provides resources or services to the community to complete the Service Provider Survey linked below. This could be resources or services provided for the wider public or ones that directly serve children, youth, and families directly.

The survey is provided in both English and Spanish.

Why is the service provider survey necessary? The Roadmap to the Future is creating the first-ever community online tool for children, youth, and family services in Yolo County. Our goal is to have a comprehensive, accurate, and consistently updated list of services in one place. To do that, we need the community’s help to share this survey with any person, agency, or organization that provides resources or services to the community.

Isn’t information about services publicly available? We have gathered all publicly available information from existing databases. However, there are resources and services in the community that we may not be aware of. Our goal is to be comprehensive and accurate in our collection of services. For that reason, we are seeking community input to inform the gaps and shortcomings in our collection of services.


In July 2021, 21 local Yolo leaders issued a guest commentary with a call to action to invest in children and youth with American Rescue Plan funds. The op-ed was a catalyst for increased collaboration from all cities and jurisdictions.

Over 50+ Yolo County leaders gathered for three virtual convenings to discuss ways to invest in communities and build up our public infrastructure to support children, youth and families in our county.

Our Collective Approach: Effectively coordinate the services, supports, and opportunities that children, youth, and their families need to thrive, as well as the establishment of a shared framework that ensures their healthy development.

About the project

The roadmap will provide asset mapping, a community engagement process, and a needs assessment on existing community assets and conditions within Yolo County. This will allow us to better understand and allocate resources needed to enhance youth development countywide.

Phase 0: Yolo leaders developed a set of principles and shared priorities that would guide the future work of the project. Completed: August 2021-February 2022

Phase 1: This phase consists of data collection and the development of maps showing community assets that provide support to children, youth, and families. A community engagement session in each Supervisorial district will be conducted to collect feedback from the community. In Progress. Estimated completion in spring 2023.

Phase 2: After asset mapping, the completion of a needs assessment will identify gaps in community assets. A second round of community engagement session in each Supervisorial district will be conducted to seek feedback on the needs assessment. In Progress. Estimated completion in fall 2023.

The Board of Supervisors will use the asset mapping data when determining how to allocate the remaining $2.2 million of American Rescue Plan funding reserved to support children, youth, and families.


The overall project is estimated to cost $450,000. Yolo County and YCOE have committed 60% of the funding, or $275,000. Local jurisdictions are asked to commit funding to cover the remaining costs of the project.
