|Organization:||Discovery Place Preschool (Youth Enrichment Programs, Inc)|
Youth Enrichment Programs, Inc (YEP) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in the summer of 1993 by Tonya Rose-Davis in the Eastwick section of Philadelphia. Mrs. Davis recognized the need to involve youth in positive alternative activities that would steer them away from less desirable ones. YEP wanted to empower youth by incorporating perseverance, dedication and passion into a program where youth could prosper academically, professionally and personally through skill refinement, goal setting and mentoring. It was through this passion that YEP was born. It also included the vision to have parental involvement, renew a sense of community and pride for at-risk children and to instill values such as hard work and dedication to carry them through life. Several programs were developed to accomplish the goal of youth enrichment. YEP has evolved into an organization providing high quality early learning programs in a fun learning environment for young children and preparing them to successfully advance to kindergarten.
