In 2004, YAP started our Youth Endowment Fund, and it was renamed the Tom Jeffers Endowment Funding for Continuing Education in 2014, in honor of YAP's founder. The purpose of the fund is to support our youth and families in pursuing college or vocational schools to advance their skills and economic opportunities. The Endowment began awarding scholarships in 2007. Since its inception, we have raised over $1 million for the Endowment and awarded 63 scholarships. Over 100 YAP employees contribute to this fund through weekly payroll deductions.
