Berkeley Youth Alternatives (BYA) uses two strategies to help young people and their families to address problems: Prevention--reach young people before their problems become crises, and Intervention--provide support services to those who are entangled in the juvenile justice system.

Description

BYA-Has several different programs: Afterschool/Summer Jam Program k-6, Teen Center, Computer lab, Garden Patch, Crisis Counseling Program, Girls Twilite Basketball- Sports Program, RAVE(Rising Against Violent Element), Mentoring Program, Nutrition Education Program, and Career Development. These programs are provided to enrich the lives of the participants.

Volunteer testimonies:

"Tutoring at BYA has been a more fulfilling experience than I could have ever imagined. It was solidified my desire to work with youth in my future career and has taught me what a quality program can do for young people and their families."

"I enjoy working with the kids A LOT. Playing games with them is just as fun as helping them with their academics. I love getting the kids engaged in the work."

"(Volunteering has) helped me become more efficient with managing time between students and coming up with different and creative lesson plans."

BYA is a beautiful model of sustainable food, sustaining kids. Their garden is a place of inspiration .They are the organization I would want to give land to if I could.
