The COuncil on At-Risk Youth(CARY) is an Austin based 501-c-3 non-profit dedicated to empowering our communities at risk youth with the life skills they need to help them avoid a life of crime and violence. Tax ID 74-2921243


Our missison is quite simple; to empower our communitys at risk youth with the skills they will need to help them avoid a life of crime and violence and break the school to prision pipeline.

CARY works in our communtys schools and provides onsight, intensive counseloing to 15 schools in three different school districts in Travis County. We work, day in and day out, to change the lives of our communtiys children. But, sadly, we are only able to help about 15% of the need for our communitys youth but you can help us change that TODAY!


Join us as we race to change lives by joining the CARY racing team. $400 dollars will help you earn a racing bib to any of the Austin marathon races that day, the full marathon, half, and the five K. But it also allows CARY to serve one student the critical services that they need for six months and that six months can and will change their lives.


So find your running shoes, get to training and we will see you at the Austin Marathon on February 18th!
