For 40 years, Berkeley Youth Alternatives has served the children and families of Berkeley by providing comprehensive services in a supportive and bias-free haven. During a period of soaring dropout rates, juvenile crime, drug abuse and family breakdown, Berkeley Youth Alternatives has successfully helped thousands of young people sustain themselves on the difficult journey toward becoming productive and contributing adults.
Berkeley Youth Alternatives has long realized that patterns of delinquency, truancy and school failure often start early. Berkeley Youth Alternatives' strategy is to help young people develop positive habits that will help them succeed in life.
