At YEP we believe it is an economic and moral imperative to create new opportunities for our young people – many of whom are eager to engage and take on new challenges, but haven’t yet been able to figure out how. In an effort to inspire short- and long-term change, we are working harder and smarter than ever to offer meaningful programs and ensure a smooth transition to post-YEP adult roles.
In a changing economy and in the face of the statistics above, we take heart: The new connections we see for YEP participants are powerful and fundamentally life-changing. And while this work is incredibly difficult, YEP staff, supporters and participants are optimistic, driven and empowered.
