ABOUT US

Youth Utilizing Power and Praise

A place for kids to shine

In 2002, Youth Utilizing Power and Praise Organization originated from the fellowship of two young people who were seeking additional platforms to share and grow in their performing arts past the boundaries of culture and their religious affiliations.

Theophilus Booker and Shelene Huey-Booker have dedicated their lives to reaching youth and adolescents who are suffering from loneliness, identity struggles and finding a sense of belonging. Within this group lie some of the most gifted persons anyone could ever meet.

YUPPORGis a 501c3 non-profit organization that serves children and youth in the areas of performing and fine arts, public speaking, and sports.

It’s not like any other organization. They keep in contact with you. They really treat you like family.

We don’t all have the same background, but when it comes to these modules. It doesn’t really matter about any of that. It’s just a life changing experience.

Comfort Zone

Its a way to get out of your comfort zone.

Really Fun

It’s hard work, but it’s really fun

Meet New People

I like being able to meet new people. It’s like family. I was really shy, but through the ice breakers I was able to open up and talk to more people.
