Mission

Our mission is to serve our communities by reaching and teaching our youth through sports and education and community service. We will promote positive self-images by providing an environment of coaches, mentors, parents and tutors who believe in our youth. We encourage them to embrace the highest values and sense of responsibilities to their families, peers and communities. We invest in the mental, spiritual, physical, financial and overall well being to build stronger kids by reinforcing education and community service.


Vision

Our vision is to give back to our community and youth by providing food and clothing drives during holiday periods for families who cannot afford and/or need assistance. We also vision of having a sports association (YERP UNIVERSITY) that is all inclusive of Football, Basketball, Baseball, Track, and Cheerleading. YU will compete in state wide as well as national competitions in all age groups. Facilitate our students’ transition throughout each level of education from elementary to college and to the professional level. We believe that our children still are the future. We are willing to invest time and attention in our future Doctors, Lawyers, Teachers, Policemen, Politicians and Athletes. Y.E.R.P will be a venue that caters to our youngsters and cares for our adults by providing healthy afterschool snacks at no charge.
