About us

Save Our Youth (SOY)

Since 1993, SOY has empowered thousands of low-income, at-risk youth from the Newport-Mesa Unified School District and provided more than $4 million in scholarships to first-generation college students.

As a non-profit organization, our mission is to provide a safe and welcoming space for teens to find hope, nourish a sense of self and an ability to grow, and develop interests and skills to become productive members of society.
