YouthBuild San Antonio is a community-based pre-apprenticeship program that provides job training and educational opportunities.

Youth learn vocational skills in construction, as well as in other in-demand industries, including health care.

Youth also provide community service through the required construction or rehabilitation of affordable housing for low-income or homeless families in their own neighborhoods.

Youth split their time between the vocational training work site and the classroom, where they earn their high school diploma, learn to be community leaders, and prepare for post-secondary training opportunities, including college, apprenticeships, and employment.

YouthBuild San Antonio includes significant support systems, such as mentoring, follow-up education, employment, and personal counseling services; additionally, participants participate in community service and civic engagement projects.

Why We Measure

 

By using data as the foundation of our work, we seek to show that for our young people to succeed, the systems they experience must change. The data show that our systems are not equitable for Bexar County’s young people, especially our Black and Latinx communities. We believe in using data to inform our partners and community, to compel action to change these systems and to help our young people be ready for the future.

Who Utilizes This Data:

  • Researchers
  • Practioners
  • Community Members
  • Youth and Families

Where We Seek Change

 

We believe in the importance of disaggregating data by race, ethnicity, income, gender, and citizenship status whenever possible. This can then help those in power make informed decisions on how existing disparities within systems lead to disparities in outcomes.

Monday-Thursday 9:00 am-5:00 pm; Friday 9:00am-4:30 pm

Excel Beyond the Bell San Antonio began in 2012 as a professional network to develop and ensure standards for five-star youth development programs and to ensure young people in Bexar County have access to the developmental relationships they need to succeed.

Data provided to the network from local school districts helps all partners better understand young people in their organizations and it empowers youth development leaders to not just anecdotally know why developmental relationships are important — it provides them with evidence on which to base organizational decisions.
