We believe programs designed to aid communities work best when community organizations work together.  This is why Summer Youth Experience Program (SYEP) has been a collaborate effort from the very beginning.  YEP is ultimately a partnership between all of the following organizations.  Many other organizations have been consulted along the way and they all have provided wonderful support and advice throughout the process.
