The Zuni Youth Enrichment Project would like to thank you whole-heartedly for your support in 2018!
With your help we were able to serve over 700 Zuni kids in 2018, a record high for ZYEP! We have been able to expand the size of our youth basketball, flag football, travel soccer, and summer camp programs to include more children, across more ages. Our resiliency-based programming does more than keep kids active; ZYEP participants report feeling healthier and greater psychological well-being as a result of participating in our programs. As we enter a new year and begin a second decade of working to improve the lives of Zuni kids, ZYEP promises to provide even more youth with high quality programming in 2019 and beyond. Support from partners like you is what makes this all possible.
This is an exciting time for our organization with the opening of our Ho’n A:wan (Zuni for "Belonging to All of Us") Community Park. ZYEP finally has space to engage Zuni youth and their families in activities that we hope will inspire good health and happy memories in the years to come. This year, your contributions will play an important role in helping us make the most of our new park space and the opportunities the park presents to bring kids, families, and the Zuni community together in healthy activities.
