Youth Advocacy Foundation YAF

2017 Event Sponsors

We would like to thank all of our donors, friends, and supporters for their enduring investment which enables us to carry out our critical work; in particular this means the ability to provide effective advocacy for the education rights of vulnerable children in Massachusetts.


In addition, we would like to acknowledge all of those who have supported YAF in honor of Chris & Shelby Ainley and Senator Karen Spilka, who have been steadfast in their ongoing commitment to shutting down the School-to-Prison Pipeline.
