Nevada Youth Empowerment Project
Reno, Nevada, USA
MissionNYEP gives homeless young women (18-24) in the Reno area a chance to reroute their lives through a structured program that provides housing and basic needs, life skills training, opportunities to practice new life skills, and the support and love of a family. A principle-based organization serving women.
NYEP provides its standardized, all-inclusive, housing-based independent living curriculum-called CLP-in our large, 8-bedroom home. We serve at least 15 at-risk, older female youth residents concurrently for one year.
Safe housing, utilities, other basic supports, complex supports, mentoring, parental supports and skills training are provided and/or facilitated by highly skilled CLP staff, who monitor and record resident progress to help our youth become accountable, established young adults. NYEP's CLP empowers young people to gain self-confidence, personal independence and personal growth while learning to meet their obligations and fulfill their responsibilities.
