About Berkeley Youth Alternatives: BYA helps youth and their families address issues and problems via prevention- reaching youth before their problems become crises, and intervention- providing support services to youth who are entangled in the juvenile justice system. BYA helps build capacity within individuals to reach their innate potential.
BYA's urban farm offers green job training to youth ages 14-24. Youth interns prepare for a variety of environmental careers and college success through planning and maintaining a half-acre market garden and quarter-acre community orchard. Youth contribute towards food security in their community by distributing 100s of pounds of produce at free farm stands, food bag giveaways, and providing public health education at local events.
