The Youth Action Project depends on the generosity of individuals and organizations that enable us to make a difference in young people’s lives. No donation is too small or too large for YAP. We appreciate everyone’s contributions.
Becoming a YAP Member comes with many rewards, but it is also a substantial commitment. Our members provide services throughout the city of San Bernardino by assisting local high school students with preparing for the exit exam and graduation.
Youth Action Project was founded in 1998 by Joseph Williams as a youth-driven project that allowed young adults to identify and address issues that matter to young people. YAP incorporated in 2003 and received its 501(c) (3) tax-exempt status in 2006 and hire it first fulltime employee Tremaine Mitchell. In 2007 YAP was awarded $900,000 to administer AmeriCorps resources in communities’ through-out San Bernardino County and specifically targeting services in the cities of Rialto, Highland and San Bernardino.
