City seeks organizations to work with at-risk youth

Friday, July 21, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Earlier this week, Austin Public Health sent out a call for community organizations capable of providing services to at-risk youth in the 78744 ZIP code, which includes Travis and Akins high schools. Public Health will choose multiple organizations to receive the Community Youth Development money over a 12-month period. During that time, the selected groups will address several key areas that affect juvenile delinquency in that area: family bonding and communication, school involvement, individual self-esteem, positive peer association and community involvement. The deadline for applications is Aug. 7 at 5 p.m.
