How To Help

Problem:

Youth residing in the San Marcos and Hays County communities face obstacles created by a lack of material resources, a safe environment to develop positive socialization skills, lack of role models, low expectations or stigmas by community, and negative peer pressure.

Target Group:

Youth residing in San Marcos and Hays County communities between the ages of 11-17.

Need:

Volunteers who are active, creative, and interested in creating positive influences

for our San Marcos youth.

Volunteers Needed at YSB
