What is ¡Vamos Ya!
¡Vamos Ya! Is an integrated outreach to the at-risk neighborhood children and youth in the inner-west side of San Antonio.
¡Vamos Ya! guides our neighborhood youth to realize their full potential and grow into productive people through holistic support and caring relationships.
Personal Development: To nurture the God-given interests and passions of our youth and be an outlet for these through activities, speakers, and field trips designed in response to their strongest interests and motivation. Our program also focuses on developing communication skills, and healthy lifestyle choices.
Community Service: To help the youth develop a sense of ownership of the youth’s neighborhood, environment, and the world.
Character Development: We hope that youth will gain a sense of respect of self, others, and property. We also work to instill qualities of leadership and inclusivity.
Post High School Graduate Preparation: House of Teens prepares the participants to take the next step of their post-graduate journey by offering assistance in the forms of homework/tutoring/ computer lab, tools for career decisions, college or technical school selection and support in securing financial aid through our partnership with the College Vista Program.
