Successfully serving youth since 1996 with TCADA, and later DSHS funding, GenYW has worked to serve youth in Central Texas through strong community ties, collaborations and partnerships.

Programming consists of weekly curriculum-based educational groups during school hours that work toward increasing youth resiliency, expanding knowledge about the personal and cultural consequences, and increasing feelings of empowerment and community connectedness. Currently, in collaboration with Communities In Schools, weekly groups are targeted to Austin Independent School District campuses and work toward improving the youth's relationships to their school and community, as well as building their resiliency skills.
