Ap2020.org, Inc is a 501c3 non-profit organization based in San Diego, CA.
We began working with the public schools in San Diego County however based on need, we have expanded our program to schools throughout the United States assisting with homeless teens in Middle, Jr High, and High School.
In 2019 the San Diego Union Tribune published an article stating that there were approximately 23,000 homeless teens in San Diego County alone. We are estimating that there are at least 1.5 million homeless teens from the ages of 12 to 18 years of age in the United States today. We work directly with the Principal, Vice Principal and counselors that have been specially trained to work with homeless teens, they and Ap2020.org, Inc understand the needs of homeless teens in America.
The goal of Ap2020.org, Inc is to prevent teens from becoming part of the adult homeless population in America. We want every student to have the opportunity to graduate from High School and then enter a trade school or obtain a college education. Ap2020.org, Inc has training programs implemented to help students find employment either part or full time while going to school.
Unless we as a nation come together to address this hidden problem there will be a much greater problem in the future.
We need to act now!
We help in various ways; by mentoring and/or assuring that the student gets what they need to function at their best. Ap2020.org, Inc can provide students with things from a bus pass to a pair of shoes to allow them to participate in sports or a food gift card that can only be redeemed for food. We will also provide books or tools such as special calculators needed for their algebra or geometry class along with clothes, and underwear. We endeavor to provide all hygiene products that teens need to stay clean and refreshed including feminine products, soap, shampoo, and deodorant, the list goes on and on.
These teens are not responsible for what brought them to their current situation. Most teens are willing to work hard for their future and break the homeless cycle.
We at Ap2020.org, Inc (adolescent project 2020) with your help can make this happen, nationally or internationally.
