The Core Is . . .


The Core is a non-profit youth organization that has been in the public eye of Santa Cruz since 2002. Our reason for being is to facilitate an endless amount of positive experiences for the youth of Santa Cruz ranging from concerts to professional speakers to classes, mentorships to surf contests, and dances. But no matter what the experience is, it is created by kids and for kids (well, mostly young adults because they are in high school). They come up with the ideas and then make them happen. In the process they are empowered, learn life skills, build confidence, obtain a sense of achievement, and have fun!
