The Youth Education Enhancement Program (YEEP) offers after-school education programs for K-6th grade students at seven learning centers in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. YEEP strives to improve grades, sharpen study skills, promote high school graduation and continued education, and foster parent participation in their children’s academic life. The program also promotes parent involvement in their student’s academic life and in their preparation for college and future work and career.

Since 1970, Peoples’ Self-Help Housing has developed 1,150 self-help home ownership residences and now manages over 1,350 affordable rental units in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties. For 42 years, the non-profit organization has not only developed affordable housing in 26 cities and communities but has also provided community facilities, supportive housing programs, financial education, and youth after-school education for its residents. These programs lead to greater self-sufficiency for the low-income households, seniors, formerly homeless, and special needs households that Peoples’ serves.
