Revolution Youth Advocates

ThreadzOur Threadz store was established in 2016.  We have partnered with the San Bernardino City Unified School District to provide a unique benefit to SBCUSD students who have been referred to our program through school site staff. Revolution Youth Advocates have been provided two classrooms on Pacific High School's campus, where referred students will be able to come "shop" and acquire clothing for school, job interviews, or special school events such as prom. We are very excited to be able to provide the necessities these students need  in a caring  environment that supports positive self-esteem. Our goal is for every student to leave knowing that they are cared for and they matter! 

If you are interested in volunteering or supporting this program please contact us.

Student Advocates, in partnership with the San Bernardino City Unified School District Revolution Youth Advocates has "adopted" Pacific High School. Every other Friday our Advocates go on campus during lunch time to talk with students and look for ways to help resource and mentor them. We have already helped make connections for a family to get health insurance, assisted with accountability to improve grades, helped with testing and provided much needed backpacks and school supplies. This year, through generous donations, we have also been able to help some graduating seniors cover the cost of their cap and gown. Our goal is to be a positive influence on the campus and to help support the staff and students any way we can. We look forward to watching this program grow and eventually expand to more campuses in the future as funding allows. 

The Broadening Horizons initiative is the most costly Revolution Youth Advocate program, but the yield is leveraged long term.  Central to this strategy is a week long summer camp experience and other retreat outings during the academic year.  Nothing is more life transforming than a week away from the urban culture.

Many students who participate in the Broadening Horizons summer camp experience have never spent a night in the mountains that surround the Inland Empire.  Their social-economic realities would never allow them to consider an opportunity of this nature.  The vast majority of those who participate require half to full  sponsorship. These opportunities to escape the chaos of home and their own communities are essential in helping the students focus on their own personal growth and give them hope for a life beyond the struggles they now face.
