The mission of Volunteers of America of Pennsylvania’s Youth Empowerment Project is to prevent risky behavior that can lead to crime and substance abuse by providing a safe and nurturing environment.
Help kids learn and grow all summer!
The Youth Empowerment Project of Sharpsburg hosts summer camp for up to 140 kids for 8 weeks every summer. This camp keeps young people safe and engaged during out-of-school time when they may be left unsupervised.
Summer enrichment programming offers educational lessons, cultural experiences, and physical activities designed to get kids moving, thinking, learning, and having fun!
As a nonprofit organization, the Youth Empowerment Project depends on donations to pay for the field trips, supplies, bussing, snacks, and more. Please consider donating to this worthy organization- your contribution will fund summer fun for kids who lack resources and access to other summer activities!
