Mentors. But mostly friends. 


YEP volunteers strive to improve the greater LA community by bettering the lives of children through personal relationships and meaningful mentorship. Whether it be helping out with homework or discussing a difficult day at school, YEP volunteers are intimately engaged with their student's needs.

YEP ensures that elementary school students from a variety of demographics are provided with a consistent role model in order to facilitate their educational success, self-esteem, and future aspirations.
