Why We Do It

Children who grow up surrounded by conflict often turn to violence as the only means of garnering attention and status. Without the tools to navigate through their teenage years, they lack the ability to make the right choices. The most basic of those tools is education.

YBR’s dual goals for our students are to realize potential and assume responsibility. We are committed to providing them with a positive alternative to the often negative narrative - as well as the current reality - of their environment. In addition, by employing camp residents as teachers and a social worker, YBR endows our staff with a livelihood and the dignity of employment.
