MEYO is an integrated outreach to the at-risk neighborhood children and youth in the inner-west side of San Antonio. MEYO creates an environment that empowers its participants through Personal Development, Service to the Community, Solid Character Formation, and a dedication to Post High School Learning. The programs include: Peace Pals (1st-5th after school program) and House of Teens (6th-12th after school program). House of Teens is a place where teenagers, 6th to 12th grade from the schools of the West Side area, can find a safe, loving, family atmosphere to nurture their passions and develop their life skills. Program runs Monday through Thursday from 4:00-6:00pm. During the first hour, students receive homework help from the staff and volunteers. If the student does not have homework, they participate in educational activities during this time. The second hour, we do a special project for each day in the areas of art/music, character development, cooking, or recreation.
