We meet virtually on Mondays and Wednesdays to introduce young learners to computational thinking through fun, engaging, and interactive activities. We offer three rotating series so students can grow their skills in several areas:

  • Code Adventures: Students build their programming abilities by working in a variety of block coding environments.
  • Digital Literacy: From cyber security to digital citizenship, Youth Code Jam staff introduce students to a variety of topics to make them better computer and internet users.

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

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

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.

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.

Assembly is our flagship event in San Antonio, Texas (with plans to expand to more locations in the future). At each Assembly, we unite international and domestic players and coaches, and challenge them to reach their greatest potential, on and off the basketball court. Our curriculum features not only the on-court technical trainings and play you would expect in a basketball camp, but includes intense workouts and classroom sessions covering everything from nutrition and injury prevention to college admission processes and life after basketball. We intertwine all of this with lessons in leadership, integrity, discipline, and mutual respect for self and others. The entire experience is designed to help all participants improve in basketball and unite them in what continues to become a smaller, more connected global community.

At TBE, we believe that we are all ambassadors—not only to the game of basketball, but to every label we fall under as individuals. Every man and woman is an ambassador to the larger group of men and women, because every interaction with one leads to a perception of the group as a whole. Our Youth Ambassador program strives to reach disadvantaged youth with life lessons like these in an environment where they’re most receptive: a basketball court.

The process of improving in both sports and life is a journey inward and outward. The drive and focus to work hard regardless of recognition or immediate results; the balance to manage swings of emotion; the confidence to take your next shot after missing your last—these are all internal skills. External skills deal with how we interact with people. Listening to others and acknowledging them, using words of encouragement, receiving praise and criticism in stride, and showing respect to both teammates and opponents alike—these are vital external skills. And they’re not only vital on a basketball court; the relationships that exist with other players, coaches, and referees are mirrored in interactions with friends, family members, coworkers, and authority figures.

The sad truth is that great opportunities are rare for our disadvantaged youth. Our goal is to establish the best habits for our Youth Ambassadors today, with the hope that they can take full advantage of every opportunity that comes their way in the future. 

The Youth Ambassadors program is currently implemented in the San Antonio area with Haven For Hope, SAMMinistries, and SA Youth.
