-Join us in this end-of-year appeal-
As the end of 2019 approaches, we can’t help but pause to think of all the lives that have been changed thanks to the programs we offer here at Youth Alliance, but it is thanks to generous partners, ongoing supporters, and incredible allies like you, that allow us to serve over 8,500 children, youth, and adults each year in San Benito County, Gilroy, and Morgan Hill.
Youth Alliance has a powerful vision of youth healing, leadership, and voice to support positive change that transforms lives and communities. Our mission is to provide innovative and culturally relevant services that strengthen and enrich youth, families, and the community. We are able to achieve all this with engagingprograms such as Power School, CASA, CAMINOS counseling, and youth and parent leadership and organizing such as in PARENT ALLIANCE and HYPE.

The need for youth programs and restorative spaces has been key in allowing young people to be safe and receive access to needed help and healing. For some, like Ozzy, it was about rediscovering his value and supporting him to accomplish his educational and life goals. Now, he is in college and looking to a bright future. Aphrodite is a star student-athlete in Gilroy. She is also a superb volunteer who began working as an after school mentor in her early teens. She is an example of YA’s vision to support youth as leaders of social change.
Lives are changed daily. In 2020, Youth Alliance is turning 25 and with this milestone, we are reaching for the stars and designing a restorative Youth Impact Center in Hollister with goals to expand the Center in Gilroy. In the spirit of the Holiday Season, I invite you to partner with us in these efforts. A tax-deductible donation will help us reach our goal of $20,000.00.
Your donation will bring necessary resources to vulnerable communities who depend on the critical support we provide in order to cultivate a healthier future for children and youth.
