academicSomali Youth United understands education and cultural awareness to be key elements of building a better tomorrow. We seek to imprint upon young minds the value of all forms of knowledge and how it can blossom into infinite possibilities.

Our goal is to bridge the academic, cultural and technological gaps that face immigrant and low-income youth within the San Diego community. SYU has engaged in a number of programs/activities to address these needs, including: digital and computer literacy, after-school tutoring, scholarship programs, Somali and other language classes and increasing access and exposure to S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) educational and career opportunities.

We believe those elements along with preserving our culture and heritage is an essential part of cultivating and nurturing an engaged generation.
