Posted by  The Young People's Project  May 05, 2020 05:15 PM

We hope you are staying safe during these unprecedented times. Here at YPP we have been working to adapt our teaching, learning and organizing to accommodate the numerous and often changing circumstances as a result of the global response to the COVID19 epidemic.

Below are some highlights of what we have been up to and what we are looking forward to!

Additionally, we urge you on this special #GivingTuesdayNow, to consider a donation to YPP (or another organization that you care about in your community.) 

We join the Giving Tuesday movement in our belief that generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad. A global threat like COVID-19 touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community.  Let’s come together to create a wave of generosity, citizen engagement, action from business and philanthropy, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.
