The Youth Education Enhancement Program offers after-school education programs for kindergarten through sixth-grade students at seven learning centers in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. YEEP strives to improve grades, sharpen study skills, promote high school graduation and continued education, and foster parent participation in their children’s academic life. The program also promotes parent involvement in their student’s academic life and in their preparation for college and future work and career.

Since 1970, Peoples’ Self-Help Housing has developed 1,150 self-help homeownership residences and now manages more than 1,350 affordable rental units in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. For 42 years, the nonprofit organization has not only developed affordable housing in 26 cities and communities but has also provided community facilities, supportive housing programs, financial education and youth after-school education for its residents. These programs lead to greater self-sufficiency for the low-income households, seniors, formerly homeless and special needs households that Peoples’ serves.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
