YAM (Youth Action Movement) was created to provide a creative outlet to local teens, while offering the support and guidance young adults needs to get through those tumultuous years. Since its inception in 1998, YAM has played a vital role in thousands of local teens’ lives and ballooned to include several fully formed programs, including:
Social activities, sports, learning, meals, discussions, and trips for various age groups. The foundation of all activities is the strong bond that staff and volunteers form with the young participants.
Mayaan Mentor Program
The Mayaan Mentor Program is a one-on-one mentoring program for teenage girls age twelve to fifteen. Girls meet weekly with trained, volunteer mentors for a social outlet of fun and support. Referrals are made by parents or through local schools.
