Youth Empowerment Project
YEP is an organization founded on the principle of caring for one another, so relationships are at the heart of everything that we do. The strength of our work is grounded in our ability to build strong relationships with young people, their families, and the community. And we have a very passionate and committed staff that make this relationship based approach come to fruition.
Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) was founded in 2004 by three juvenile justice advocates to support formerly incarcerated young people as they transitioned back into their communities. It was the first program of its kind in the state of Louisiana. Since then, YEP has expanded to provide mentoring, education, employment readiness, and enrichment programming. Our core purpose is to empower young people to improve their lives and the lives of others. YEP programming operates out of 6 different program sites, 3 in Central City, 1 in Algiers, 1 in Mid-City and another in St. Charles Parish - serving young people across the greater New Orleans Area.
