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.
The BYA gardens are part of The Environmental Training Center which is a youth internship program for teens and young adults ages 14-24. Youth learn basic work ethics and standards, professionalism and skills necessary for further employment at BYA and beyond.
