K9 Youth Alliance enriches the lives of youth from under-resourced communities where we focus on the social-emotional growth of children and shelter dogs. 

We are a publicly funded nonprofit organization - your support helps youth and shelter dogs build brighter futures together.

We are a group of people who are passionate about enhancing opportunities for youth from under-resourced communities and giving homeless dogs the chance they deserve to live a happy life.​

Our Team


Our program team includes a program director, certified canine trainers, educational facilitators, experienced canine assistants and one-to-one student-dog mentors.  We partner with youth service providers, area animal shelters and community presenters. 


To join our team please contact us at K9YouthAlliance@gmail.com or call (424) 272-5992.  You can also fill out our Volunteer Application Form here.
