On its 3.5 acre farm in East Austin, Urban Roots serves teens and young adults through paid internships that focus not just on farming, but also on their growth as leaders and good citizens.

Amala means “hope” in Arabic. We believe that when people are committed to their own growth, there is hope for an equitable, inclusive, and compassionate future for all of us. Since 2001, Amala has been building a healthy and diverse community by focusing on a culture of belonging. For youth, Amala offers social-emotional learning (SEL) programs that bring together children and teens from diverse cultural, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds. For adults, Amala offers professional workshops and trainings, yoga, and mindfulness classes. Our youth programs offer students a unique blend of mindfulness, movement, and sharing circles to help them learn to navigate the challenges of adolescence, connect with peers from different neighborhoods and backgrounds, build healthy relationships, and develop wellness practices. For adults, we partner with schools and organizations to custom build workshops, trainings, and classes focused on emotional intelligence, personal and community wellness, equity and cultural responsiveness, mindfulness, self-care, and healthy communication.
