ribbon-icon-sqWho We Serve

Project YANO primarily serves young people who are looking for job training, wish to go to college or want to make a difference in other people's lives -- but they might not see enough opportunities to pursue these goals. We also work with educators and others who advise young people, and we support youths who are using activism to change their lives, their communities and the larger world they are part of.

There are many ways that you can play a role in the work that we do.

"I recently heard about Project YANO. As an ally in the environmental/peace movement and an individual who cares a lot about investing in young people, I'm saddened by the way that the military is offered to so many young adults, but thrilled that your organization exists." Mary S., Greenpeace activist trainer
