What We Do

YFGG is participating for the first time in #DoGoodDays !
Our goal is to raise $2,000 for our summer art & mentoring and for the culture program to meet the needs of our growing organization.

During the summer, youth are most at-risk due to all the idle time. YFGG aims to host weekly programming 3x a week to provide a positive outlet for the youth we serve. Your donation ensures we are able to serve the max amount of students possible and keep our youth off the streets.

NEEDS:
-transportation - gas
- meals/snacks
- program materials

We have 60+ members registered in our various programs but only have the capacity to serve no more then 20 at a time.
The Vice President of South Sudan visited Omaha, NE in 2021 and met/learned more about YFGG. They left feeling proud of the diaspora youth
