From a volunteer-based grassroots organization, Hmong Youth and Parents United (HYPU) has grown to provide employment and career opportunities for youth and young adults. HYPU’s executive team, advisors, members at large, liaisons, and volunteers are all strong-willed individuals with a prodigious commitment to servicing the community.

The scope of work and capacity of HYPU has also grown in the years of its operation. Since its beginning, HYPU has worked and continues to work in establishing and facilitating programs in the areas of English and Hmong language acquisition and proficiency, literacy, parent accountability and involvement, self-discovery and development, and academic excellence. In addition, HYPU coordinates National Night Out annually for communities to engage and address public safety with local law enforcement officers, firefighters, and community leaders and organizations. In 2018, HYPU based its office location at the HOPE Center in North Sacramento and has extended its services to encompass a healthy living program to address the needs of community members such as the senior population. HYPU's current programs focus on culture and language preservation, education, youth empowerment, health, and mental well-being.

Mission

HYPU's mission is to empower underserved communities by providing and promoting culturally sensitive educational, social, and economic opportunities and resources to underserved communities, such as the Hmong, in the greater Sacramento region.

HYPU is committed to assisting the underserved communities in attaining the highest practicable quality of life and thriving in the areas of family, health, and education.

Needs

Senior Day Program is in need of funds to support the activities and food that is provided each session. These activities help address the senior's mental health, depression, and many of their health needs. We deliver packets with art activities and English worksheets along with food bundles each month to seniors.

We are in need of volunteers to help assist with all the program activities such as the Senior Day Program and the Youth Pop-Ups.

Volunteer opportunities consist of presentations on health, exercise coordinators, art instructors, counseling services, and snacks and lunch for the seniors at the Senior Day Program. Our youth events also welcome any volunteers who would like to give back to the community.

The Performing Arts and Culture Program is in need of funds to provide a stipend for instructors and materials for classes. These classes provide the community of Sacramento and any interested individuals an opportunity to learn, appreciate, participate, and practice a variety of Hmong cultural arts and performances.

HYPU needs in-kind donations of office supplies, food, or anything that can be given to the community. We also organize food bundles giveaways and toy drives for the community.
