Engaging Youth in Leadership and Community Service

A 24-Hour Celebration of YR

On November 4, 2017, the YR family came together to celebrate the first-ever YR Day. In just 24 hours, we raised critical support and painted the world with our YR pride. We couldn’t have done it without you.

The Impact of Your Donation
Since 1987 we’ve worked with over 149,850 students and funded more than 3,310 service projects in 6 counties. Our alumni give, serve, and lead in education, healthcare, business, law, nonprofits, tech and more, using the skills they learned through YR’s programs.

Last year our students served over 8,000 hours with more than 100 local organizations, and they planned 63 service projects with their peers. They opened their hearts to the needs in our community and put their hands to work making a difference.

By giving to YR on YR Day – or any other day of the year – you are changing the lives of our community’s youth and making an impact on the world through their leadership and service – a ripple effect that lasts forever. Thank you.
