Youth Empowering Parents (YEP) is an innovative program that aims to change people’s perceptions on how to educate adults and engage youth. Rather than a traditional classroom with an instructor, YEP trains youth with the skills to act as effective volunteer tutors for adults in their community.

CL&D provided the resources and space for YEP to grow and flourish into its own organization and since 2010, they have served over 850 participants with a retention rate of over 80% for both youth and adults. Their mission is to work with communities across Canada and around the world to provide free, accessible one-on-one tutoring, promote inter-generational learning, and to strengthen community relations through education.

CL&D has been a supporter from the start and will continue to partner with this award-winning venture that began in Regent Park.
