Youth Aid PAnel (YAP) volunteers must be 21 years of age, a Centre County resident, and submit criminal/child abuse clearances.
YAP members attend one (1) 3.5-hour evening meeting per month to meet with youth and their families and work with the panel to develop a contract for the youth to come to a resolution related to their charges.
A light dinner is provided for panel members.
Volunteers can choose to mentor a youth which involves being available for brief weekly phone calls with the youth to touch base on their progress towards meeting their YAP contract goals and requirements.
This is a great opportunity for retirees and those who want to work with and help local youth by giving them a "second chance" after they have made a bad choice.
