JUST SAY YES!
The Youth Project is in its 18th year of serving the Santa Clarita Valley; we are a small non-profit organization providing FREE mental health services including counseling, support groups, outreach/education and crisis intervention to thousands of teens in Santa Clarita Valley in the Hart School District. On average, we provide more than 8,000 hours of service each year.
The Youth Project relies 100% on grants, special events, and the kindness of the community. We have been fortunate to create relationships and partnerships that continue to validate what we do and we are so beyond grateful, but as requests for our mental health services increase so does the need for financial support.
In an effort to raise awareness and much-needed dollars, we are proud to share the Say YES to Youth Campaign. The Say YES to Youth campaign will have many facets with the primary focus being: engaging and connecting our neighborhoods, together providing a strong and healthy environment for our kids to grow up in.
Say YES to Youth invites you to support The Youth Project on a daily basis. By investing your dollars, you are investing in the health and well-being of our youth.
