The Washington Youth Academy Foundation provides needed support for academic programs and cadet financial assistance including scholarships and job assistance. To accomplish our goals, having a regular donation as little as $10 per month (the cost of just two lattes) makes a big difference in the lives of the young men and women making big changes in their lives. Please consider a monthly donation. Just follow the link in the button below. Thank you for helping.
