Mission Statement

Bay Area Youth Agency Consortium (BAYAC) AmeriCorps collaborates with schools and community-based organizations to serve youth and families in the San Francisco Bay Area. BAYAC AmeriCorps Members commit to a full-time (40 hours/week) term of service in the Bay Area's most high-need communities, working to provide youth with opportunities for meaningful engagement, skill building, and emotional and social development.

Description

BAYAC AmeriCorps Members do a term of public service, working at either a nonprofit, health clinic, or school to serve underserved youth of the Bay Area. Many of the children and youth we work with are deeply impacted by the stressors and obstacles presented by poverty, disadvantaged neighborhoods and under-resourced schools. BAYAC AmeriCorps Members are an essential component in expanding our partners' capacity to meet the critical needs of our youth and community and serve youth at their placement site for a majority of the week and participate in training with their regional team an average of 16 hours per month. Members also lead regular activities promoting participation amongst youth, giving them an opportunity to express their views and opinions. Our Members serve directly with youth to develop their participation skills in decision-making processes within their communities, clubs, or associations to whom they belong, and at their school.
