Youth On Their Own

Educating Homeless Teens

This month Give Local Tucson spotlights Youth On Their Own.

Youth On Their Own is a dropout prevention program that has been supporting the high school graduation of homeless youth in Pima County since 1986. This school year alone Youth On Their Own served more than 1700 local homeless youth by providing direct financial assistance; free access to basic human needs; and guidance both during and after high school.

Youth On Their Own is funded almost entirely by local community donations, both financial and in-kind. You can support Youth On Their Own right now by participating in the 2018 Back to School donation drive.
