American Association of Caregiving Youth
Our agency serves 6th-12th grade youth in South Palm Beach County who are caregivers for a sick guardian, sibling or relative. Our volunteer drivers provide transportation to youth and sometimes family members to and from an agency event or an appointment related to the caregiving youth and/or family member's health & well being.

Established in 2005, the AACY is the first and only organization in the United States that reaches out to the young caregivers of ill, elderly or disabled family members. Our organization assists childfren who are caregivers of a relative, to restore their role as children and help them succeed academically, psychologically, developmentally and socially. We build bridges between the systems of healthcare, education, and community to help these children in school, out of school, and at home so they can have the skills and support they need, as well as a space to socialize with peers and succeed in life,
We provide caregivers with skills-building and stress management groups. Also a camp experience, fishing trip, cooking tips and tutoring.
We help with college planning, workshops to help develop personal goals and assistance with scholarships.
