Youth Advocate Programs, Inc.



Through our partnership, Youth Advocate Programs, Inc. (YAP) is able to provide 400 more young Chicagoans with neighborhood-based mentor-advocates who are trained to help youth identify and realize their strengths, while connecting them and their families to tools and resources that help firm their foundation.

Our investment in YAP is focused on gaining advocates for youth between the ages of 12 and 18, who are: active or at risk of gang affiliation, on juvenile probation and likely to recidivate, disruptive in school, or a victim/witness to violence, with the hope of reducing their risk in the future. We believe in YAP’s model and invested in a study to help prove out their model to help let them grow and reach more youth.
