Support YATC

You Can Make a Difference

YATC is funded solely by our generous donors and receives no government funding. Contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated.  

Here's how a $100 donation can help the kids:

  • Purchase a set of textbooks used in auto technical class or GED preparation
  • Cover transportation on Tri-Rail or transit bus passes
  • Allow two students to sit for the GED exam
  • Provide a week's worth of groceries for a student and family

…I can’t thank our supporters enough for making YATC the first and best school of its kind and giving disadvantaged kids a second chance at a positive future.
