On behalf of the Arizona Youth Partnership Board of Directors, I am honored to share this 25- year anniversary annual report.
AZYP was founded in 1990 by a group of concerned citizens who saw a huge lack of services in rural Pima County and wanted to bring more resources to these areas. Pima Youth Partnership was born in the communities of Ajo, Marana and Sahuarita. In 2006, we changed our name to become Arizona Youth Partnership and expanded to Gila, Apache and Mohave Counties bringing resources to rural communities statewide. This year we celebrate 25 years of cultivating healthy foundations for youth and promoting strong families.
In addition to celebrating our 25th anniversary, we began two new strategic initiatives. This includes Providence Place, a shelter for girls in Bullhead City and Open Doors Preschool in Marana. Both of these new programs represent an expansion of the amazing work that AZYP has been doing for 25 years.
On behalf of our Board of Directors and staff, we thank you for your support and interest in AZYP. We are looking forward to another 25 years of changing lives.
AZYP Board President
