CTV Teens partners with other local non-profits to bring media education programs to youth beyond the station. We strive to serve youth of various backgrounds who have been historically disserved, including youth experiencing homelessness or high mobility, newly immigrated youth, young women, and youth from low-income families. We have and continue to work with several different organizations to meet these needs, including the following:
The mission of the Women's Initiative for Self Empowerment (WISE) is to empower immigrant women and girls to succeed. Girls Getting Ahead in Leadership provides an opportunity for 7th-12th grade immigrant and refugee girls to prepare for college, improve academic skills, and build leadership skills with other girls facing similar challenges. GGAL is designed to create a community of support for the participants and their families. Our number one goal is to help our GGALs dream big and create realistic plans to achieve those dreams.
The Roseville Library is a LEED Gold certified branch and circulates almost two million items annually. Special features include a Dunn Bros coffee shop, a separate teen space, a large children's room and Children's Reading Garden, study rooms and a variety of programming for adults and children. Internet access, WiFi, and bestseller rentals are also available.
Roseville Area Schools' Unity Centers offer students and their families a place to get extra help and participate in a variety of academic, artistic, and cultural opportunities outside the school day and when school is not in session. These opportunities equip students with the skills to thrive in school and far beyond.
Emma’s Place offers permanent housing to single parents with three or more children. A wonderful community environment gives the residents of Emma’s Place a village in which to raise their children. Kids of all ages can benefit from afterschool and organized extramural activities including study groups, 4H, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, tutoring, family counseling, arts and crafts, and other social and educational opportunities.
NYFS has been serving youth and families since 1976 and we are keenly aware of the social, economic and academic achievement gap between low-income and marginalized youth and their peers. NYFS has organized its youth-serving programs specifically to close this achievement gap by providing guidance, access and opportunities for youth and their families.
Solid Ground provides a supportive learning and living environment in which families with children can thrive. We provide a variety of programs and activities to help the formerly homeless children in our housing programs grow socially, emotionally and academically.
