Challenge Team

Te Sunnyvale Challenge Team is a community group that meets each month to discuss the challenges facing youth and families in our community. Leaders from private and public sectors, including educational, judicial, health care and faith-based organizations, look for creative and compassionate methods to bring positive influences into the lives of youth and to guide them away from the damaging influences of gangs and drugs.


Our Challenge Team supports activities designed for youth at risk and families, along with other projects involving elementary, middle and high school aged youth from our local public and private schools in the city of Sunnyvale. The Challenge Team looks to The 40 Developmental Assets as a guide in our efforts. We believe that working together we can make a difference for our youth of today and for the health and productivity of our community.
