How can you make a difference? It's easy.
YAP receives funding from federal agencies, private grants, and individual donations. In these tough economic times, now more than ever, your support is vitally needed to help us maintain our mission through working with youth and families across the country and internationally.
Our measured outcomes indicate that YAP's strength-based, community-focused advocacy services have a positive impact on youth and on their communities! Youth paired with advocates demonstrate real differences in their personal and academic lives.
Donating to YAP will help us to change systems one biography at a time:
- Re-Connecting youth with appropriate educational programs
- Preventing youth from re-offending
- Connecting youth and their families with employment
No matter what amount you decide to give, donating will improve the lives of youth and their families in your community. Your donation will help YAP's clients meet the challenges of thriving in a world that may have otherwise ignored them.
