YouthWorks is a non-profit organization in the community of Paso Robles that teaches us leadership skills, and job skills to prepare us for the working world.
Thanks to the generous support of The Community Foundation of San Luis Obispo, YouthWorks was honored with a $10,000 grant. The grant funds will be used to expand our YouthWorks development programs, providing job skills training and work experience for Paso Robles youth aged 13-18.

  • In 2017 The Women’s Legacy Fund of the Community Foundation San Luis Obispo donated $4,000 to support our new program, the Oak Park Coding Club.  Students from 2nd to 9th grade meet weekly to learn computer coding and application building from high school engineering students. 

  • USDA through the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County  granted YouthWorks $4,000 a year for 4 years to support the YW farm.  In 2017 the students built 18 raised beds, amended the soil, installed drip irrigation, planted a range of vegetables, and harvested 1,400 pounds of fresh produce that went home free to local families.
