YIPA creates change in the world through relentless advocacy and exceptional professional development.
We envision changing
the world. THE BIG PICTURE as we
see it is that all youth can succeed.
SO WE ADVOCATE
To encourage leaders in every community to be vocal
advocates for local support.
To convince policy makers that Youth Intervention is a
necessary investment with measurable returns so they will enact
appropriate funding measures.
To ensure that Youth Intervention programs everywhere
have the resources they need.
AND WE PROVIDE
EXCEPTIONAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Because we believe the more competent a youth worker
becomes, the more real difference they make in the lives of the young
people they support.
Our mission is simple: Ensure that Youth Intervention
programs are supported in their communities and they have the resources
they need to provide high-quality and cost-effective intervention services
YIPA's Executive Director explains why Youth Intervention is an essential service.
