River City Youth Foundation (RCYF) is Austin's longest running locally founded youth organization celebrating 36 years. Although RCYF has served neighborhoods all over Austin, today we provide programs and services exclusively for the underserved community of southeast Austin's Dove Springs.
RCYF provides youth and family oriented programs focused on technology training, college and career readiness, mentoring, wellness, and community development. Some of its signature programs include the Dove Springs Coding Academy, TechComunidad, and TechPromotora.
We believe all children can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
The mission of River City Youth Foundation is to empower all youth and families in southeast Austin's Dove Springs to live safe, healthy, and productive lives.
The vision of River City Youth Foundation is to be the model of comprehensive neighborhood based youth services that maximizes every child's potential and improves communities.
