Giving back to YAP by making a financial gift makes me feel like I am doing something to make a difference in the lives of youth and families across the globe!

YAP Donor

I know that YAP invests directly in youth by giving them jobs, helping them with immediate needs and even relocation when necessary- the need is there!

YAP Donor

Thank you for helping my son.

YAP Parent

I was… in foster homes. I was locked up for 18 months. It wasn’t very good… Because of YAP, my goals have become more obtainable. I always wanted to go to college and now I’m finally doing it.

Shelby YAP Participant

I think what makes YAP so effective is their wraparound approach. They support kids on all these different levels at once, their neighborhoods, their schools, their families.
