2017 Coastal Cares Nonprofit Program
Coastal YPN is pleased to announce our 2018 Non-Profit Partners! Forming and maintaining these relationships is key for Coastal YPN and the community as a whole to create a better city for everyone to live, grow and take part in. Throughout the year, we'll be working integrally with the following Sheboygan County-area non-profit organizations:

Our hope is that by connecting to a mission that resonates, we can join with other great people, create even more ways to get involved, and truly make a difference in our community. We will work with these non-profit partners to integrate them into pre-existing programming as well as create new programming, supply volunteers to help with volunteer opportunities through the organizations and feature them on our social media channels and website.

Keep an eye out for the amazing projects we will work on with these non-profits in 2018!

It all starts with a LITTLE… and it makes a BIG difference.
It’s estimated over 5000 kids in Sheboygan County live in homes falling just above the federal poverty level. With parents struggling to provide basics like housing, food, and health care, there often isn’t time left to provide kids guidance to build healthy relationships, attend school regularly and think about the future. That’s where you come in! Big Brothers Big Sisters of Sheboygan County invites you to do something BIG today and become a volunteer mentor. Visit https://www.bbbssc.org/our-programs/ to get started today!
