Mission

YSOP is an organization with a national reputation for providing high-quality volunteer service experiences for young people. Started in 1983 by Quakers, YSOP uses high school and college students as volunteers to help meet the needs of homeless and hungry people in New York City and Washington, DC. Through YSOP's Workcamp program, we help schools and religious groups engage young people in service. By having participants interact with the city's needy people, they will see the impact of their work and continue to participate in service activities.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

YSOP Service Program

YSOP conducts overnight and weeklong Workcamps, as well as Service Days, Service Dinners, and other single day projects. All of YSOP's programs combine direct service with orientation and reflection. Through reflective activities, young people deepen their understanding of the problems they are confronting and relate their service to their personal values. While the needs of society are enormous, the participants can see that even small efforts make a real difference. To address the basic needs of homeless people, many non-profit agencies and religious institutions depend heavily upon volunteers and continuously seek new recruits. As government agencies continue to cut their funding for social services, the need for volunteers becomes acute. YSOP's programs answer the needs of both service providers and students who are eager to serve, thereby increasing the pool of volunteers available to serve hungry and homeless people.
