Austin Youth Educational Support

Since 1998 our partner, SA YES staff members along with dedicated volunteers, have personally distributed over 425,000 school supply kits to students in South Texas.

Each year, Austin YES selects local Title 1 elementary schools and supplies students with a free package of school supplies.

In 2019, Austin YES assisted more than 5,500 local elementary students with free school supplies. Austin YES does not believe in simply giving a hand out; the board members, staff and volunteers personally go to each elementary school and hands each child an individual packet of supplies. This act serves as a reminder that each child is important in our community.
