What is BAYAC?
Bay Area Youth Agency Consortium (BAYAC) AmeriCorps is a National Service program of Bay Area Community Resources. BAYAC AmeriCorps Members commit to a year of service at partnering schools and community based organizations, providing youth in the San Francisco Bay Area with opportunities for meaningful engagement, skill building, and emotional and social development. AmeriCorps members provide direct services to youth in the areas of youth development, health education, academic support, and other capacity-building activities.
Many of the children and youth we work with are deeply impacted by the stressors and obstacles presented by poverty, disadvantaged neighborhoods and under-resourced schools. BAYAC AmeriCorps Members are an essential component in expanding our partners' capacity to meet the critical needs of our youth and community.
