opportunities for all Youth
YouthWorks has been leading the way in youth re-engagement since 2001.
Approximately 1,200 young people of diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds from across Northern New Mexico come through the doors of YouthWorks each year. YouthWorks prides itself on never giving up on the youth who seek our help. We pull out all the stops to help our young people succeed.

We at YouthWorks are so grateful to you and our community of supporters in this extraordinary and challenging year. This year has demonstrated that through enduring commitment to community, service, and support for the futures of all youth that together we can make it through.
Your generosity and support of YouthWorks as donors and volunteers empowered our organization to respond to community need during COVID in a very big way. With your support, to date YouthWorks has provided over 150,000 hot meals to children, youth, families, and community members experiencing homelessness since the state shutdown in March 2020. Your support also helped us to retain our paid youth employees and to hire new youth staff. Over the past year, YouthWorks has created jobs for youth working in safe and socially distant settings outdoors on farms and trails, and in the YouthWorks Kitchen and meal distribution sites.
YouthWorks has continued to run our programs that support youth who during the pandemic are: seeking jobs, pursuing their GED, needing support services from our case managers and counselors, and preparing for a successful future for themselves and their families.
Your 2020 gift to YouthWorks will be efficiently utilized to continue to support YouthWorks’ vital work in helping Santa Fe’s youth succeed!
