Young And Prosperous Foundation programs will primarily focus on youths and schools in underserved communities. From 2014- 2018 the area of Southeast San Diego saw an increase in the crime by 340 percent in five years. (Per the San Diego Union-Tribune. -June 2019). It has a high gang population and one of the highest crime rates in the city.
The Young And Prosperous Foundation Program Director will meet with school officials interested in the programs offered by YAP to set up schedules and cohort start times. Once contracts and agreements are agreed on and signed, the Program Director will be given four weeks to contact presenters, guest speakers, and facilitators to conduct the weekly sessions.
To provide resources to youths, promote personal and educational growth while bridging the gap between the community and law enforcement.
