Our mission is to support at-risk students and community groups in San Antonio through educational outreach of free school supplies and grants.
SA YES was established in 1998 to create a better future for youth in San Antonio and South Texas. Over the years, $3 Million has been put back into our communities through school supply distribution, scholarships for high school students and grants for schools and non-profits.
Starting in 2016, the SA YES Foundation will focus on School Supply Distribution and Grants for schools and youth focused community groups.
Each year SA YES selects numerous, elementary schools in San Antonio and supplies every student in those schools with a free packet of school supplies. Since inception, SA YES has provided over 250,000 deserving students with free school supplies. In 2016, 23,000 students at 40 elementary schools received free school supplies from SA YES. SA YES staff and volunteers visit each elementary school and personally hands every child an individual packet of supplies.
