Just As I Am Reading Program – The reading program allows our volunteers to go into schools or learning facilities where inclusion classrooms are found to read storybooks on special needs acceptance. The school will be provided with books for students to take home and read with their families throughout the school year. TYJF understands the importance of inclusion classrooms and we believe that this program will help teach kids to be more accepting of others with all types of special needs. In order to meet this goal, we are asking for donations or sponsorship’s from individuals and organizations.
Hunger Relief – the Yva Jourdan Foundation, Inc. goes into various communities to distribute food to those individuals and families that have a need. Often donating to soup kitchens in the Nassau County and NYC area to make sure the needs of the hungry are being meet.
Family Services – this is a fundamental part of our efforts to improve the quality of life in our communities. Our annual summer camp sponsorship, back to school donations, and children holiday party have made a difference in the lives of many families with school age children.
Emergency & Disaster Relief – Yva Jourdan Foundation, Inc. will respond to the needs both at home and abroad in the event of an emergency or disaster. We will assist other non-profit organizations in meeting their mission in disaster areas.
Teen Community Services – Students are allowed to volunteer their services to the community through the Yva Jourdan Foundation, Inc. They can participate in our Hunger Relief, and Family Services programs.
