message FROM THE founder


"Hello, I'm Donald Washington Jr, Director and Founder of the Youth Empowerment Readiness Program Inc. aka Y.E.R.P University.  Our mission statement is "If there's no trust then there's no us". I have a bachelor's in business management with emphasis in Entrepreneurship. We established YU and have been running the organization for approximately 8 years doing community events and participating in sporting programs in the Greater Kansas City area. I have experience coaching youth football for over 10 years on all age levels and have been coaching high school football the past 5 years. In our programs you will see that the children learn important fundamentals of life through our coaches and mentors as well as through the community events we do. It is REALLY more than sports when it comes to "OUR YOUTH ORGANIZATION".  D.W., Jr.
