Union City Kids’ Zone (UCKZ) is a community program within New Haven Unified School District. UCKZ promotes “cradle to career” success by engaging and empowering children, youth and families in the community to utilize their full potential. It is a partnership of families, schools, community, and public and private organizations working together to foster empowerment, quality education, wellness, and economic opportunity. It strives to build community by engaging everyone to participate. The end result is that all students will achieve at high academic levels, have access to high quality early childhood education, families set goals and priorities that include college and career preparation, community members have sufficient access to integrated health and wellness services, and positive patterns of behavior are incorporated into the fabric of the community.
