HerRise MicroGrant Program – The Yva Jourdan Foundation, Inc. through it’s partnership with Women on the Rise NY, Inc. dba HerSuiteSpot provides women small business owners with the capital, tools and support you need to be successful. We offer entrepreneurial training, a small business grant, business advice, and a wealth of resources.
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.
