Welcome to the Sherwood Valley Youth Program!
Please take a look at the services we offer below.
yax kanema (Strong Relative Program)
In this program, youth increase their skills in leadership, self-expression, identity, & education through cultural arts, workshops, gathering materials, and exploring our environment with community members who share their own skills, experiences, and traditional knowledge.
Cultural skills, Northern Pomo Language, education support, case management, technical and leadership skills, community engagement, and community trainings and workshops are some of the highlights from our yax kanema program.
