Youth With A Purpose is a Non-Profit organization that provides supportive services for youth and young adults. YWAP believes that every young person has a purpose and when we plant seeds of hope, encouragement and opportunity, we water their purpose. We seek to bring mentorship, mental health, academic support, career services and empowerment services and resources to the communities that actually need them.

YWAP is expanding our SideBySide Youth Mentorship program and is seeking 5 qualified mentors for the 2021-2022 school year. Like Josh Shipp, we also believes that "every child is one caring adult away from being a success story". Would you like to be that one caring adult for a child?

  • Interview
  • Background check
  • Bachelor's Degree

  • CPR Certified (or willing to become certified)

Mission Statement

Our mission is to plant seeds of hope and water purpose in the lives of youth through supportive services. We envision a world where minority youth have equal access to resources and opportunities.

Description

We provide youth and young adult mentorship, life skills, empowerment and outreach. We currently have a new pilot program working with African American pregnant moms and babies. We match pregnant moms with mentors who will support them throughout their entire pregnancy to decrease stressors and increase a joyous birth.

We have also provided self care bags, groceries, gift cards, bus passes, backpacks and more to our young adult clients.
