In lower income communities of the Bay Area, students struggle to overcome the pervasive challenges of crime, racial tension, gangs, violence, low performing schools, lack of resources, fatherlessness, addiction and family instability.  But we have seen the power of the Transformational Journey to help students build up resilience, character and leadership qualities through Christ right in the midst of those circumstances.

The strength of our program relies almost entirely on volunteers throughout the year.

The majority of our volunteers attend summer camp, but there are many other ways to get involved with Today’s Youth Matter!

How will you be part of their Journey?

Background Check

For your protection and the safety of our children and youth, all volunteers who interact with students are background checked.  Let us know if you have any questions.

Attend a Training

We hold trainings on a regular basis and you will need to attend one in order to serve.  It’s a great way to get to know our mission and learn how we provide a highly relational and impacting experience for students.
