Seven Years of Exemplary Service to Atlanta's Youth
YPM is an innovative and creative organization, primarily because we
value young people. We pride ourselves on being able to work with
teenagers who trust us and over 90% of the youth we serve are
self-referred. They find us and we find them.
"My mother left me
in an apartment when I was 15. Just left
and never came back. After a few
days, the landlord changed the locks. I realized I was on my own.
Without YPM and Ms. Joye, I would not be where I am today. Young People
Matter took me in when no one else wanted to. They gave me a
today 7/10/12, I have a job and steady income, plus I have my own
apartment! Thanks YPM."--Former resident and lifelong YPMer.
