    Youth Action Programs and Homes, Inc. (YAPH) is an East Harlem-based organization that for three decades has been committed to empowering youth and building community. Its roots trace back to 1978 when a group of young people and their teacher, Dorothy Stoneman, acted on their belief that young people could be a powerful force for good in their neighborhood. Their mission was to create a community of young people and adults committed to taking responsibility for their own lives and for improving the larger community. As home to the nation’s first YouthBuild Program, over the last 30 years, YAPH has served as a vehicle for the transformation of thousands of young peoples lives through education, job training, and leadership opportunities, while engaging them in the rehabilitation of affordable housing. Through YAPH’s YouthBuild AmeriCorps Program, young people have renovated over 200 units of housing in East Harlem, providing much needed housing for low-income/homeless families.
