The Canyon State Academy Youth Village enterprise training centers are open to the public.


These training centers were designed with “Community Integration”, which encourages and invites the community to be a part of the children’s lives who have been placed at Canyon State and Desert Lily Academies, at the forefront.



The model is inspired by the Nigerian Proverb, “It takes a whole village to raise a child” understanding that the “whole village” means the community at-large.
These training centers provide opportunities for students to engage with the community while developing and practicing career skills. When you make a purchase, you help students gain invaluable work experience and earn income in support of their future goals of independence, post-secondary education and personal development.
