  • Experience

  • Background Check

    YPR is a strong proponent of "ban the box" and second-chance legislation. As such, YPR consists of many people with criminal backgrounds. Therefore, having a criminal record, such as but not limited to DUI's or nonviolent felony convictions, in no way disqualifies applicants from starting Chapters. However, to ensure the safety and protection of many people with whom YPR closely works, YPR does conduct criminal background checks.
  • Support

    Starting a chapter is a serious commitment. Please list the names and emails of two people who are willing to start the chapter with you.
