What is youth development?

•  Age range: 10-24

•  Focus on youth gaining something that’s of use later, vs.
just an experience

•  Mentorship and ongoing engagement

•  Safe spaces for youth

•  Supporting positive development rather than responding
to youth as problems
What we looked at (and what we didn’t)

Suppression (erred on the side of underestimating):

•  Arrests – estimated budget via share of youth arrests (19 and under)

•  Incarceration – reported youth-specific spending (county only)

•  Where possible, youth-focused legal system costs (DA, PD, City Attorney)

Youth Development (erred on the side of overestimating):

•  Workforce and job skills programs – specific allocations

•  Recreation and library programs – sometimes specific allocations,
sometimes estimated from youth share of programs or population

•  Other city initiatives (e.g. Santa Ana Sunshine Ordinance…)
