YANA is entirely volunteer-led, and relies on the generosity of our members and those who believe in social good to support our inspiring programs for hundreds of individuals and organizations in the social impact space.

There are many ways to support YANA.  In addition to donating financially and registering for our email list, you can start a YANA chapter, or get involved with chapter leadership or national YANA governance through working on a committee in areas such as budget, marketing, fundraising, governance, membership, and mentoring.  Contact Ken Inadomi with questions or to indicate your interest.
