Our Work: Youth Master Plan

In 2012, the SPCC Board implemented a Youth Master Plan for Saint Paul.  A Youth Master Plan is similar to a youth agenda, a city blueprint or a children’s bill of rights. The purpose is to set a vision for the future, assess current resources and needs and create a road-map for moving forward that ensures accountability and sustainability.

The Saint Paul Children’s Collaborative uses the Youth Master Plan framework to guide our grant-making process. Our Youth Master Plan focuses our work on these six goals:


Children are ready for kindergarten

Children are reading by third grade


Children have health coverage

Children are connected to caring adults


Children are safe and free from child abuse and neglect

Children graduate from high school
