Keith Hosea – President
Owner, Telios Training Solutions

Thoughts on YAP: “Throughout my professional career I have been devoted to helping the youth of the Inland Empire. For the last 10 years I have had the opportunity to work directly with the prolific population of transition aged foster youth throughout San Bernardino County. My work with YAP has allowed me to reach beyond the scope of foster youth only to impact many other groups of youth in our community as well.”

Thoughts on YAP: “I’m pleased to say I have been a part of the Youth Action Project and its development for the past 5 years. I have watched the organization as it has become an example to other non-profits providing services for the greater good of the community. YAP is a program of excellence and proves to expand it’s scope in the services we provide each year. We do this through leadership training,youth development,educational enhancement,economic & community development which empower the communities we serve ‘One Youth at a Time’.”

Thoughts on YAP: “I have had the privilege of being part of this organization for the past year and truly believe in the mission and purpose.  There is a great need to increase focus on the education of at risk youth in San Bernardino county and to increase graduation and college enrollment rates.  I know that our youth are our future leaders and if we can increase education obtainment we will be securing a better future for our communities.  It is necessary to have organizations like YAP that are willing and dedicated to building a better educational foundation in the communities we serve.”

Eddie Villa – Treasurer
Southern California Edison

Thoughts on YAP: “My personal experiences along with my educational and career journey has aligned me to be a part of YAPS. I think that it is important to not only give back to your community and programs that support today’s youth, but to also send a message that we believe in the futures’ of the youth. Regardless of their challenges, it is imperative that they know of possible opportunities and how to peruse them. The youth need to know that their voice and questions can be heard. With the mentors and guidance that YAPs offers, they will have the exposure to professionals that care and will dedicate time and invest in them.”
