YANA seeks to assist children who are confronting various challenges on the home front. This includes but is not limited to children dealing with illness in the family, divorce, financial stress and other difficult situations.
One of the integral components of our organization is that the children we help are completely unaware they are part of an organization. No one wants to know that they are needy and require help. All of our wonderful kids just want to live normal lives without being singled out as a “case”. Our job is to publicize YANA and its mission without the recipients of YANA being aware that they are a part of the YANA picture.
Our program is stimulating, exciting and very necessary for the children who are often falling behind in school due to their situation. Our big brothers/big sisters assist the children with their homework, and once a week we sponsor food and prizes for all participants in the after school program. All the big brothers and sisters receive hourly monetary compensation for working in YANA. The big Brother/Sister program creates a natural bond between the big and little brother that allows us to help the child more then just educationally. Program highlights include taking the child out to eat, going to ball games, doing homework and just being there for the child in the capacity that best suits them.
As the summer approaches YANA is receiving many requests to help send children to sleep away camps. We deal with a number of different camps all of which give us a discounted price. We are looking to run this fundraiser to help jumpstart a nice campaign to send many of our kids to sleep away camp.
