Street Youth Ministry of Austin exists to know, love and serve street-dependent youth. The first step of our mission is to notice street youth. Then we must understand their culture to know how to love and serve them. SYM spends time every day with more than 100 young adults. We provide basic services, counseling, referral to services, and Christian guidance counseling. It it a privilege to know these young people.
Can you be a dog sitter at our Bible study event called "Chillin?" You will be assigned to watch dogs outside on the garden patio of the Congregational Church. Clients often also sit outside and talk with the dog sitters. All dogs are friendly and in good health. You should be familiar with handling dogs, however, so that you can protect the dogs from any improper approach or handling by others.
