The Youth Service Opportunities Project (YSOP) is a nationally recognized nonprofit volunteer organization operating in New York City and Washington D.C. The program is committed to helping young people become part of the solution to societal problems by showing them the smallest actions can make a difference in the lives of others.
The Lenape Regional High School District has partnered with YSOP to encourage community participation and engaged citizenship through direct service to homeless and hungry people. On our last trip students prepared meals, cleaned facilities, operated bingo games, served food, processed paperwork, inventoried supplies, organized a dinner party and much more.
Last year over 4,200 students from around the country participated in YSOP programs and served more than 365,000 hungry and homeless men, women, and children.
