Youth Advocacy Foundation YAF

Partners & Supporters

YAF’s method is highly collaborative. We depend on the efforts of innumerable individuals and organizations. High on that list are our volunteer board members, and the dozens of Massachusetts law firms that generously lend us their time, their facilities, and their professional staff to help fight for the causes in which we all believe.

We would like to thank the Cummings Foundation for selecting the EdLaw Project as a recipient of one of their $100Kfor100 grants. To learn more about the Cummings Foundation, please visit their website

Both YAF and YAD partner extensively with like-minded community groups. We often say we are defenders in the courtroom, and partners in the community.

We’d like to give a special thanks to Photographer Richard Ross who generously donated the use of his images.
