A local nonprofit is gaining a lot of attention for its work with at-risk youth. The program is called Youth Odyssey and has partnered with the Corpus Christi Independent School District to help increase life skills through a focus on adventure.

The program will join 45 other nonprofits taking part in the upcoming Coastal Bend Day of Giving, an online effort aimed at providing financial support to worthy organizations in need.
