SAYA youth have a passion for problem solving, setting positive examples for their peers, and creating opportunities for others to succeed. It is AVPRIDE’s pleasure to give these young leaders a relaxed environment in which they can learn from each other. Connecting them to community leaders who are committed to enhancing their skill sets and providing service opportunities allows for further skills development.

These youth have opportunities to build personal and professional skills and relationships, explore careers with professionals in the requested fields, and develop meaningful relationships with peers. SAYA has been described by a former participant as “a safe place to grow.”
“SAYA is a program for young adults who exhibit the traits of someone who could contribute greatly to society one day. We have regularly scheduled workshops where we build personal and professional skills. We get the opportunity to explore different careers with professionals in those fields. There are also lots of volunteer opportunities and even scholarships offered to program participants. As a part of SAYA, you will have a safe space to grow alongside your peers while getting exposed to people and opportunities that you would not come across otherwise.” -Caleb Adams
