About Us

Boy With a Ball turns vulnerable youth populations from being a city's problem into the solution. While disconnected, disengaged youth damage a city’s future, we have found a way to turn these young people into the heroes their city needs.

Boy With a Ball (BWAB) was founded in San Antonio, Texas in 2001 to fill a void in local youth programs, in the pursuit of developing scalable solutions. At that time, most programs for youth focused on either attracting youth to a site or provided only a few hours of mentoring a month, diminishing their impact and funneling their dollars into a dead-end.

However, BWAB's innovative team-based approach trained and released large numbers of motivated volunteers into some of our city's toughest neighborhoods. The power of presence, long-haul commitment, and our willingness to learn from those we seek to serve has borne lasting fruit.
