Youth Empowerment Project


Age: 9

Primary Program: Afterschool Program 

Secondary Program: Summer Camp

“I came to YEP so staff could help me with my homework,” says Aleeyhia who has been attending YEP’s Afterschool Program for the past three years with her older brother and sister. “I like arts and crafts, especially making slime!”
However, Aleeyhia’s favorite thing about YEP is the Summer Camp that provides youth between the ages of 7-15 with a fun, free and engaging summer experience.

The 4th grader says her grandmother also really likes YEP’s Afterschool Program and Summer Camp because she wants her grandkids to be challenged and to learn new skills.

“My favorite thing about YEP is when summer comes, we get to do fun activities like ballet, karate and swimming.” –  Aleeyhia who did all three activities this past summer.
