Youth Alliance Honored by the 2016 California Peace Award!

Youth Alliance Receives the 2016 California Peace Award

 

Youth Alliance was awarded the California Peace Award at National Night Out on August 2, 2016.  Asm. Luis Alejo’s representative, Javier Gomez, congratulated Executive Director, Diane Ortiz and the YA team for its contribution to the success and sustainability of programs and outreach that “enhance the community’s quality for the entire population and instill a great sense of pride in those individuals associated with” YA. In addition, YA was honored for “its exemplary record of civic engagement and community service,” all while acknowledging the importance of investing in our youth as prominent leaders of our community. YA is committed to investing and empowering these young leaders as agents of change not only for themselves but for their community as a whole. YA is on the forefront of our communities’ social uplifting–providing a much more socially conscious narrative in which our youth are seen as leaders and role-models for the rest of the community.

 

“YA is proud to be honored for investing in local youth for over 20 years. Our entire community benefits from our youth leaders when they are living proof that investing in their education and life success truly works.” – Diane Ortiz, Executive Director

Put a Stop to Math Misplacement in our Schools–Support SB 359!

Support SB 359

From the Silicon Valley Community Foundation

SIGN THE PETITION

Many students are being unfairly held back because their school district does not rely on objective measures to determine their placement. The result is “math misplacement,” a practice that results in a student being forced to repeat a math course even though objective measures such as test scores indicate they should be advanced to the next course. Studies have shown that math misplacement disproportionately affects students of color.

The most egregious math misplacement issue occurs when a student is held back to repeat Algebra 1 instead of being advanced to Geometry. This can cause students to fall too far behind to complete the courses that colleges expect a math or science major to have taken.

Accurate placement is essential to preparing students for a college track and/or readiness for growing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). At a time when the state and nation face a shortage of qualified STEM workers to meet workforce demands, we must find ways to fix this leak in the STEM pipeline.

Please support Senator Holly Mitchell’s SB 359–The California Mathematics Placement Act of 2015.  SB 359 will ensure that school districts adopt fair, objective and transparent math placement policies so that no student will experience math misplacement.
