The nation's capital is home to YAP's Policy and Advocacy Center and our International efforts. The Policy and Advocacy Center was founded in 2012 to promote policies and influence change that create or invest greater resources in families and communities and reduce reliance on institutionalization. YAP's International efforts began in 1991, with fundraising and advocacy efforts to a program in Guatemala that works with street children that continues today. Since then, YAP has engaged in a number of additional direct service, fundraising, and training and consultation efforts with a number of countries.
