The Lowell Youth Activities Program, Inc. (LYAP), is a non-profit affiliate of the Lowell Housing Authority (LHA). It is an IRS 501(c)(3) tax exempt 509(a)(1) public charity. Run by voluntary Board Members, from varying backgrounds, the Program’s mission is to aid in the advancement of Lowell Public Housing and Section 8 youth. Each year the Program awards an average of $15K in college scholarship funds to LHA youth pursuing a higher education.
One hundred percent of funds raised by the LYAP go back into the Program, benefiting current and future recipients of a LYAP College Scholarship. The Program’s main fundraiser is its annual Philip L. Shea Scholarship Awards Reception, where recipients are recognized for their academic and extra-curricular accomplishments, as well as for their community involvement and future aspirations. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, June 29, 2023, from 5 – 7pm. We would love for you to join us in celebrating LHA’s hardworking youth! If you are unable to attend the reception, please consider making a monetary donation. The support is greatly appreciated!
