SA Youth operates multiple Academic Achievers program sites year-round for low-income school-aged youth during non-school hours when juvenile crime and delinquency typically peak. This service includes a safe facility, nutritional sustenance, caring adult role models, and supervised educational activities. Students can also participate in countless additional opportunities such as reading clubs, homework assistance, field trips, family engagement, and physical fitness. These positive development opportunities can boost self-confidence, foster growth, and aid in dropout prevention. We currently serve over 1,000 children within South San Antonio ISD.
Our SOAR! program aims to revitalize unemployed young adults ages 16 to 24 who have exited the traditional schooling system. This new beginning allows them to renew their hope and recover their high school diplomas. These individuals learn marketable skills while participating in progressive education, workforce training, and leadership development. These young adults will be equipped to enter the workforce as they’ve acquired the knowledge, skillset, and work ethic needed to rise above their circumstances. We believe that everyone deserves a second chance!Read more
