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.
