To empower young minds to solve local issues through leadership training, program development, and a growing network of changemakers.


We envision a world where young people are both civically engaged and empowered to use their ideas for social good

Letter from the CEO

As I reflect on the past two years with SYA, I can’t help but to feel honored to have served such a bold, gutsy, and motivated team of individuals. The SYA tribe has worked tirelessly to ensure that young people in San Antonio and across the nation, understand their value. Whether it was hosting events that educated the community on complex issues such as waste and biodiversity or building competitions that fostered creativity and excellence, our team has never stopped working to advocate and push forward the next generation. A huge thanks to our partners, community members, volunteers, and donors who believe, just as much as I do, in the power of young people. Cheers to a great past and an even brighter future.
