CBS Austin today has started featuring River City Youth Foundation (RCYF) as its 2021 September Community Partner. As part of the initiative, CBS Austin will highlight RCYF's service to the southeast Austin Dove Springs community from its technology training and college readiness to its mentoring and community development programs.
The monthlong recognition will include on-air PSAs in both English (CBS) and Spanish (Telemundo) as well as featured appearances on both its We Are Austin lifestyle show and Making A Difference news program.
"We are so proud to be recognized by the CBS-Telemundo Community Partner Program," said Mona Gonzalez, the founding Executive Director for RCYF. "It's such a great thing they are doing to help local nonprofits tell their story. For 38 years, River City Youth Foundation has had one consistent story which is to provide life changing educational and wellness opportunities for the most underserved youth and families in greater Austin."
