A new decade means time to reflect and grow for Southside Youth Outreach!
Find out what we’re up to and our plans to grow our community through building strong, young lives!
Since Southside Youth Outreach was founded, it has sought to serve and aid children in all forms of need. Along with that, as we have been approaching this new decade, we have found that our core values of innovation and collaboration have been guiding our evaluation and development of what we want to see Southside Youth Outreach become.
In fact, this new blog style of our newsletter is our solution to an ever-growing digital age and our desire to keep our wonderful supporters, really our family, better informed and involved in what they are helping to create! Therefore, you can expect a monthly blog from one of our staff on a range of events, goals, and needs that SSYO is currently encountering. We hope you’ll join us each first Friday of the month to learn more about what we’re up to and how you can be involved!
For 2020, we have two main developments that we are incredibly excited to announce:
In short, we view this crucial training as an investment into the future of Southside Youth Outreach. With these credentials and understanding that come from trauma-informed care, we hope to better care for the community and children in our care using these life-transforming methods. We will do this by equipping our volunteers and staff with carefully crafted tools that develop the whole child through correcting methods. Additionally, we would love to partner with various community organizations, schools, churches, and even counselors to use this information to better serve the youth in our city.
For more information about this training check out our website or go to child.edu.tcu.
Secondly, in September of 2019, we launched new or modified versions of our old programs and are excited to see how these changes will develop to the needs of our community.

As we always say, the future is bright at Southside Youth Outreach and we can not wait to see how your partnership with us will continue to build strong, young lives so our community will thrive!
