About Us

Youth Advocate Programs, Inc. (YAP) of New Jersey is excited to announce our new Fatherhood Healthy Relationships Initiative.

A coordinated array of services will be provided with the ultimate goal of shifting New Jersey's social climate towards one that highly supports fathers as essential beneficial influences in all children's lives.

YAP will provide monthly Community Workshops in each of the participating counties/cities to educate attendees about local resources, inform participants of the positive effects of father involvement and increase community social support for father engagement.

A 12-week course utilizing the Nurturing Fathers curriculum will be provided to develop each participant's interest in and ability to implement positive and nurturing fathering skills.
