Our Work

Southwest Youth Services is a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and wellness of Native American youth around the state of New Mexico and beyond. Through soccer and nutrition initiatives, SYS forms partnerships with many organizations, both urban and rural. With the help of AmeriCorps VISTA, SYS successfully places 15 VISTAs in areas with need for growth to continue to create capacity in these areas each year. This hard work and dedication, SYS and AmeriCorps VISTA are continuing into their 7th year of partnership, reaching out to new sites around New Mexico to create healthier lives for Native American youth and their families.
