Youth Development

Access Lounge/Youth Development Center: The center serves an a culturally diverse resource space for youth to access computers, printers, fax, machines, educational materials, job postings, and career development materials. 

Youth RISE:

Youth RISE is a group of young diverse leaders (15-20 years of age) whose mission is to create positive social change by creating an empowering community and advancing the voice of young people. 

Summer Youth Program:

ARI's hallmark program for 31 years has been its Summer Youth Program.  The program provides at-risk youth with important career and leadership skills.


The program provides youth with important career, life, and leadership skills training through an intensive two-week academy followed by a paid work experience opportunity. 


At the last Summer Youth Program orientation, we had  500 interested youth attend.  As one of the few organizations with a summer job program for youth in the state of California, we want to be able to accommodate all interested youth in gaining work experience and job skills. $1,000 per youth ensures that each program participant has an internship experience.
