YOTO Donation

We excited to support Youth On Their Own with a $268,500 donation for the development of their student portal in order to significantly improved the way YOTO’s Program Team interacts with students, provides services, and offers essential resources to help students succeed! Ongoing development of the student portal is an integral part of YOTO’s four-year strategic plan and will enable Program Coordinators to assist more students with school enrollment and re-enrollment, getting them back in school, making accessing YOTO services much easier for students, to support them in meeting basic needs, and improving inventory management. This year also brings the development of a much-needed liaison portal to keep YOTO’s amazing school liaisons informed and connected; increasing mobile friendliness for students; and adding a live chat feature to immediately answer student questions.
