Austin YES supports Title 1 Elementary students and community groups in Austin through educational outreach of free school supplies and classroom grants.
Back to Basics Project
In our inaugural year, Austin YES supported 7,500 local students with the basic school supplies they will need to start the year off right – confident and motivated.
By providing each student with their own school supply kit, we hope the act serves as a reminder that each student is important to our community and the importance of being prepared to learn and grow.
We are excited about supporting Austin and look forward to Fall 2019!
In line with our mission, we are honored to provide grants to select classrooms and organizations for improving or providing access to enhancing the learning experience. Our grants are designed to generate and validate solutions to persistent educational challenges and to support and serve substantially larger numbers of students.
