GANAS: Guidance And Navigation to Achieve Success

GANAS is a YA program that provides intense case management services to referred local youth. Ganas in Spanish means “desire to overcome” and we feel the name of the program couldn’t be more appropriate as we believe these young men and women have the ganas to get ahead but often times feel stuck. Participants in GANAS are mentored in various skills and on issues such as employment & interviewing skills, education, truancy, self-esteem, and in some cases provided support to address gang involvement or homelessness.


“It made me a better person than I was before. I’ve been doing the things I’ve needed to do to succeed.”
