Youth Assistance Coalition
Help us create change for at-risk youth in San Diego, CA. YAC reaches young adults who are living on the streets, those who are at great risk of "falling through the cracks" in an overwhelmed system. Please help by supporting YAC's mission, "Positively impacting the lives of youth experiencing homelessness through empowerment, mentorship, and community collaboration in order to provide transformative opportunities."
But there’s a problem
As a 100% volunteer driven organization, YAC needs our help to fund their initiatives, pay for tuition and books for kids getting back to school, help with food, housing, clothing, bus passes, 1 on 1 mentoring, mental health support, obtaining IDs, continuous case management, etc.
Here’s what we’re doing about it
We, the SD19 class of Ascension Leadership Academy, are committed to supporting YAC and the amazing work they do to break the pattern of youth homelessness. We are donating over 2,000 personal hours to raise monetary and non-monetary donations to support the kids being empowered through this organization!
And how it’s going to change the world?
The youth of today are our future tomorrow and today we can BE the change we want to see in the world! Today we can help shape the future by empowering at-risk transitional age youth who have a unique perspective, who are being transformed with compassion, love, mentoring, who are learning that their lives matter. Your donations will make that happen!
