YEZ Logo Youth Empowerment Zone

What we do:

YEZ builds employment, empowerment, education, and entrepreneurship skills in at-risk youth and young adults in Boone County. From job readiness training to childcare, we work to disrupt the generational cycle of poverty.

Why we’re great:

YEZ gives at-risk youth the individualized support needed to get to and through college and become productive, self-sustaining adults. Our program is an all-encompassing, anti-poverty effort that is literally saving a generation of kids.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

YEZ has deep roots in the community and these roots are building a culture of success in which Boone County youth can excel for generations. Sustaining this culture takes resources.
