Youth Action Board of San Antonio

We work to expand the youth voice and implement youth equity in our city’s homelessness response system.

Our Mission and Values

The Youth Action Board is responsible for understanding and advising on improvements for the current homeless system. We pursue the creation of a homeless system centered and focused on youth and young adults. We give the voice back to the youth by establishing youth equity.

We value: Inclusion, Diversity, Change, Support, Education, Accountability, Equity, Service, Integrity, and Leadership
