WE ARE ACYR
ARIZONA CENTER FOR YOUTH RESOURCES
For over 40 years, We have been serving Phoenix’s opportunity youth the resources they need to become successful educated and employed adults. Our academic, vocational, and employment programs offer local youth the opportunity to realize their potential, build their pathway and guide them to success.
In 2010…Phoenix, Arizona was rated one of the worst cities in the US for youth not in school or employed.
At-risk or opportunity youth face barriers daily that prevent them from successfully transitioning into adulthood. Many common barriers for these youth are poverty, family instability, poor school environment and much more. The longer these youth go without assistance the less likely they are to become successful adults. Join us to change the statistics and futures of at-risk youth in Phoenix. Learn more.
Our commitment to developing the next generation of workers is our top priority. Our focus to ensure our success in serving our community starts with our staff, programs, and principles.
