The Youth Equality Project (YEP) is a partnership of public and private agencies led by CASA and the Prince George’s County Department of Social Services. YEP’s mission is to provide support and services to foster youth who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning.
We advocate on their behalf, connect them with resources and host educational and social events to help them further develop life skills and establish and reach their career and personal goals. The Youth Equality Project seeks to make life better for LGBTQ youth in Prince George’s County, Maryland. Learn more about YEP!
If you would like someone from the LGBTQ Youth Task Force to speak with your staff or lead a training, please email Ann Marie Binsner at: AMBinsner@pgcasa.org.
Children in foster care who have aCASA volunteer are more likely to succeed in school and adjust to change. And they’re half as likely to re-enter the foster care system later. By getting involved with CASA, you can make all the difference for a child who has experienced abuse or neglect in you community. Get involved, and change a child’s story.
