The Kinship Youth Program (KYP) serves children and youth ages 6-18 who are being raised by a kinship caregiver: a grandparent, aunt, sibling or other relative caregiver. In KYP, creating and maintaining a positive community is emphasized and students learn to take ownership over their experience in the program. Participants are then encouraged to apply these skills to their lives outside of the program.
To refer a youth to the Kinship Youth Program, call Kenitra Holland at (510) 834-4006 ext. 3076, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
