CARY continues to grow.

We are proud to announce that with the kick off of academic year 2016-2017, CARY expanded services to students in Del Valle ISD and Manor ISD. Specifically, CARY Senior Youth Advisor Melissa Axton is assigned to Del Valle High School, Youth Advisor Denisse Plotycia is assigned to Ojeda Middle School, and Senior Youth Advisor Nicole Gerard is assigned to Manor Middle School. We are excited to partner with these districts as we share a common goal of providing youth the tools they need to avoid crime and violence, while improving campus safety efforts. As the population in the Austin area continues to grow and change, we are working hard to expand to areas where our youth need us the most. We look forward to many successful school years with our new partner districts!

An Evening with Danny Trejo

CARY hosted its 10th Annual Guest Speaker Gala featuring actor Danny Trejo on September 15, 2016. Mr. Trejo wowed the audience with his impassioned speech on the importance of spending time engaging and supporting our youth. His personal journey of overcoming addiction and going on to serve as an advocate for youth in addition to his well-deserved cinematic fame inspired our audience and provided a perfect evening to celebrate the work we do. But the highlight of the evening came when three of CARY’s own students took the stage to share how CARY has positively impacted their lives. There was not a dry eye to be found as each student spoke about the obstacles they’ve overcome with help from the tools and support they gained with CARY. We hope you will consider joining us for future events. Come back to our page often for details.
