Fueling Hope Through ACTS of Service


We believe that  learners' confidence  grows through using unique gifts and passions  in acts of service.  And this confidence fuels hope to make the world a better place. 

YPA students Are:

Learning Ready


YPA learners  engage in academic and executive function coaching  and goal setting activities. They  discover tools that build  success  through daily 1:1 and group lessons.

Service Ready


YPA learners explore  their unique gifts and challenges.  They practice using these gifts, both individually and as a group, by creating service projects to contribute to their communities.

Choice Ready


YPA learners connect learning to life outside the school day. They participate in coaching that helps them  own their learning experience and reflect on choosing a college and career path.


Take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about YPA.  We hope you enjoy your visit and take a moment to drop us a line. 

Would my learner benefit from YPA? 

While we believe that all students benefit from a personalized plan for their learning success, some  students have a greater need for customized learning.  We're here to support you in your journey with your kiddo and have made a list to help you reflect on your learner's experiences in school.

  • Have your child's teachers  said, "I just wish I had more time to work with your child 1:1 in my classroom?"
  • Are you  homeschooling your  elementary-aged kiddo and considering a new type of learning environment?
  • Do you feel like your kiddo is advancing through grades without really "learning" the material?
  • Is your child dealing with mental or physical health challenges that make regular school attendance a struggle?
  • Do you have a sensitive learner who feels lost or overwhelmed by a large classroom environment?
  • Does your child have a strong preference for learning at a certain time of day, while other times feel like lost time at school?
  • Do you worry that your kiddo is "just not getting it" in school, or does your kiddo feel sad about going?
  • Does your child struggle to keep organized, take notes, and make a study plan for school assignments and tests?
  • Do you have a kiddo who is involved in many extra curricular activities and struggles to keep up with academics as a result? 

If you've answered "yes" to two or more of these questions, we'd love to  schedule a phone call or visit to help you find out more about us, and how we may help you get the resources you need for success!
