Youth Success Week

The health of our community depends on the success of our youth. Our youth succeed when they discover their purpose in life, so how do we help them do that?

Youth Success Week (YSW), created by CAYS, engages youth in discovering their purpose from our curriculum, the YSW event where youth express their story, and community participation and support.

The YSW curriculum takes students on a journey to explore what success means to them on their path to discovering their purpose. Discover Your Purpose curriculum co-developed by Kearny High School teachers, headed by Daina Weber. Experience the amazing talks below on what success means to these young people on their YSW journey.
