Our SBFC Partner Districts and Schools are committed to the social emotional wellness of our youth. Critical to that goal is creating inclusive school and community environments that encourage and embrace every individual's uniqueness and authenticity, as well as foster meaningful connections with others, community, and the environment. We hope you will find these resources helpful in our shared goal of raising up our youth to reach their full potential. Please click on any of the buttons or images below to access resources.

South Bay Families Connected aims to connect our families and schools around the numerous teen wellness challenges we face individually and as a community. Below are the three main ways SBFC offers opportunities for parents to share both their parenting challenges and successes in a non-judgmental and supportive environment.
Share your story as a parent in the South Bay (use submission form), and read those of others.
