The strength of a community

Inspired by the idea that summers should be a special time for Zuni kids when they explore their lands, learn new things, make new friends, and have fun, a small group of community members planned the inaugural ZYEP summer camp in 2009.

That first camp was a huge success for kids and adults alike, and it helped instill a belief that together Zuni people could contribute to the healthy development of Zuni youth. The results of this early work grew into a year-round schedule of fun and meaningful youth programs to more than 800 youth annually, free of charge.

ZYEP is committed to being there for every future generation of Zuni youth. With a strong positive outlook for both children and the nonprofit, its programs are set to enrich the lives of Zuni youth for generations to come.
