Youth services

The Youth Service Provider Network (YSPN) is a coalition of agencies that serve Santa Ana youth 16-24 years of age.  We receive funding from the Department of Labor through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.  We offer unique and innovative programs that help youth transition into the world of work.  Our programs are free to eligible youth and all services adhere to nondiscriminatory and equal opportunity practices.
