Nevada Youth Empowerment Project (NYEP), a unique, community-based youth service provider founded in 2007, develops, implements and evaluates programming targeting homeless, aged-out, unprepared, parent less youth (ages 18-21), designed to produce the outcomes desired for older youth and emerging adults; high school graduation, employment, college education, independent housing, good citizenry, and avoidance of welfare. The philosophies that drive the agency approach include:
- Developmental Relationships
- Rational Emotive Behavior Interventions
- Token System
This innovative organization receives no government dollars and is in a constant state of finding new partners whose funding interests and/or desired community outcomes align. These connections not only give NYEP the financial means to do its important work, but also provide the necessary opportunities to develop and implement the most effective and efficient solutions for wayward, unhoused, unsupported youth; solutions which support and empower young people to motivate and change their lives for the better.
