Multi-level Educational Youth Outreach is an after-school outreach to the children and youth of the inner west side of San Antonio. Our mission is to provide a community that empowers our participants in personal development, solid character formation, community service, and post-high school dedication. The youth in our area need a safe and loving place to spend their time outside of school. At our two programs Peace Pals (1st-5th graders) and House of Teens (6th-12th graders) youth come and do their homework, have friends who won’t bully them, and receive the developmental support they need to thrive. 100% of youth who have stayed in our program have graduated high school with University or career plans. The more youth we are able to impact, the closer we get to ending the cycle of poverty one family at a time. Talk to team leader Steve Gottlieb.
Life Works is a fearless advocate for youth and families seeking their path to self-sufficiency.” This organization targets youth between 17 and 24 who have aged out of the foster care system, many who are homeless and on the streets of Austin, often suffering from depression and neglect.

Talk to team leaders Janet or Dom Cavalucci.
