Individuals YAP serves come to us through partnerships with youth justice, child welfare, behavioral health, education and other systems committed to our strength-based individualized service model.
Through relationships with legislators, local nonprofits, places of worship and community influencers, we are able to give families access to tools they need to develop social, emotional, financial and physical well-being.
YAP’s work is built on a foundation of research demonstrating that people do better throughout life when they have support where they live, work, learn and play. YAP Advocates are from the neighborhoods we serve and available when and where young people and families prefer to meet.
Having access to positive relationships, spaces, activities and services empowers individuals and families to maximize their potential, which creates healthy and vibrant communities.
