Join us on January 29th for YSW OPENING EVENT



Supported by – CAYS, Oceanside’s Promise & Oceanside Unified School District

A community partnership supporting and inspiring all students
to and through college to career.

The CAYS team came together as a collaboration of volunteers who take a stand for the education and well-being of our youth.  They, and their futures, matter to our communities and our cultures.  They are smart, creative, interested and are a distinct contribution.  Our intention is to ‘hear’ them….and facilitate their ability to communicate and take action.

CAYS provides the platform for our leaders of tomorrow, no matter their heritage or experiences, to cultivate their sense of self, their understanding of their character, the attributes of leadership and the sense of belonging.  We do this through summits, workshops, events and curriculum – and ultimately, collaboration.

It started in Oceanside, California with a group of committed volunteers.  NOW….let us move on to national momentum – community by community, young leader by young leader, and with the support of those of us who recognize their voices as influencers of all that will be positive.
