Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To develop the character, strengths, talents and skills of San Antonio's high-risk urban youth through fun, safe experiences, positive learning environments, and holistic programs that inspire each individual to fulfill their potential personally and in the community.
SA Youth's prime focus is helping young people achieve academic success, develop their character, and promote healthy lifestyles. We operate several out-of-school sites for school-age youth and one alternate campus and training center for young adults ages 16-24 who have left the traditional school system. SA Youth's OST program takes place after school and during the summer for youth between the ages of 5 and 13. Our site locations operate four to five hours during the school year and up to ten hours over the summer and select school holidays. SA Youth provides a safe place, caring adults, and positive youth development programs during the out-of-school time hours when juvenile delinquency and other risky behaviors can occur. Our YouthBuild program provides unemployed high school dropouts, ages 16-24, a second chance to recover a high school diploma or GED while learning marketable skills at the same time. Members are directed through structured online and class-based curriculum. At SA Youth, we create a safe environment where young adults are free to learn; where everyone is valued, guided, and taught leadership qualities, which directly enhances their growth in self-confidence.
