We at YPOP EXPLORERS are extremely thankful and excited to announce that we have received a $10,000 Grant from Gerald Knight and the SPECKHARD- KNIGHT CHARITABLE FOUNDATION. This is our first grant and we are thankful for the trust that the Speckhard-Knight Charitable Foundation has placed in us to provide quality programming to youth and families in our communities. We are passionate in our goals and vision, To Open Minds with Purpose, To Explore Regions with Knowledge, and To Make Positive Impacts on the World.

Let’s Build Together, It Takes A Village! As we roll up our sleeves and get to work in our Annie’s Art Venture Land Markets and Gardens, we will use our funding to build our beautiful gardens and markets with creativity and art. This is a unique place where youth and community alike will bring the village to life.

Join Annie, Barney, Clara and Sam as they and our youth take positive action, affect change and make an extraordinary difference in the lives of their home, their school, their community and their world! YPOP EXPLORERS is based on the book “Annie’s Amazing Art Venture”.

Thank you again! Gerald Knight and the Speckhard-Knight Charitable Foundation for helping us to bring the village to life and to make a remarkable difference in the lives of the many youth and families we serve. If You See Something! Do Something!
