The goal of Campus Life Connection is to reach every young person…one at a time. Through our various programs, we seek to achieve this goal and live out our mission. Currently, we have programs serving Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, El Dorado, and Nevada Counties.

Crossover has grown from a small spring league to a multi-faceted program that reaches hundreds of at-risk youth each year. Through a spring “everybody plays” league, traveling AAU teams and after-school life skills programs, Crossover impacts youth through the involvement of caring, consistent, healthy adult role models.

Point Break creates an atmosphere of honest communication in which students and faculty work together. Participants move through a variety of high-energy games, small group discussions, encouraging teaching segments and poignant moments of personal reflection, all of which call for honest introspection. Through this process, students who have been silent in the past find opportunity to share and trust their peers. Read more about what Point Break can do for your local school on the website.
City Life focuses on reaching at-risk children and teens through after-school centers and inner-city outreaches. In Citrus Heights, students have a safe place to go after school where they can get help with homework, a healthy snack and participate in educational and recreational activities. The ultimate goal of City Life is to raise up indigenous leaders in these communities who will affect long term change.
Embrace. Engage. Empower. That’s what we do at the Collings Teen Center in West Sacramento. Teenagers are provided with a fun and safe environment after school where computers, video games, pool tables, air hockey and other recreational activities are available free of charge. Most importantly, the caring staff at the center are healthy, adult role models who invest in their lives.
Juvenile Justice Ministry
Juvenile Justice Ministry engages young people where they are in a variety of youth-serving institutions (detention centers, probation, correctional facilities, group homes, residential treatment centers and emergency shelters). These relationships are continued as the youth leave the institutions and re-enter their communities. JJM Sacramento focuses on four areas of development – mental, physical, spiritual, and social – with the goal of bringing hope and light to young people in their darkest moments.
