Community Partners

We are better together!

Yachad is built on the foundational principle that our community can achieve more through collaboration than one individual institution could offer alone. By creating these strategic partnerships, Yachad is able to offer a wide range of opportunities for our teens.

Yachad is pleased to have been selected to participate in the national UpStart Accelerator cohort.
