Best Way to Help Kids Help Themselves

American YouthWorks

American YouthWorks has been transforming the lives of at-risk Austin youth for 30 years. Their holistic approach to education and community service has enabled thousands of would-be dropouts to complete high school, find employment that supports them and their families, build life skills that last a lifetime, and gain the self-respect that comes with self-sufficiency and giving back to the community. Clifford Antone founded their Help Clifford Help Kids fundraiser, and through this dedicated support over the last few years, AYW has achieved a higher profile. With the passing of Austin's blues club legend, that torch has been picked up by Clifford's sister Susan, who is insuring that the good works will go on and that AYW will be able to serve generations of teens.
