The City of San Antonio has identified a need to serve approximately 30,000 to 35,000 young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 who are disconnected from education, work, and major social institutions.  Having a large group of youth who are undereducated and disengaged from societal support systems equates to lower economic growth, lower tax revenues and higher government spending. To combat this issue, the Department of Human Services, in collaboration with Goodwill of San Antonio and Communities in Schools of San Antonio, will open and operate the state’s first comprehensive youth re-engagement center.  Together, these organizations believe in the potential all youth have and know their success is an essential part of ensuring San Antonio remains a vibrant place to live and economically strong.
