The Youth Service Opportunities Project (YSOP) is an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in New York City by Quakers in 1983. 
In April of 2003, YSOP expanded to Washington, DC.

YSOP is committed to helping young people become part of the solution to societal problems by showing them how even their smallest actions can make a difference in the lives of others. While YSOP was created for young people, we welcome people of all ages to YSOP.

YSOP is a nationally recognized leader in providing high-quality volunteer service experiences. YSOP has been a pioneer in the field of service-learning, leading thousands of young people and adults in programs to encourage community participation and engaged citizenship through direct service to homeless and hungry people.

Last year (2012-2013) 4,021 participants served more than 463,600 hungry and homeless men, women and children in New York City, Washington, DC and Philadelphia.  YSOP hosts middle school and high school groups,  college students, faith-based groups serving on mission trips and community organizations.
