In March 2000, the Harambee Christian Center created the Jim Riley Courage Award acknowledging and honoring his commitment to community service.
It is through his vision to maximize charitable acts with a fearless spirit, that the Yes-U-Can Foundation was established as a tax-exempt organization energized solely by volunteers. There are no administrative salaries and all profits are utilized for the betterment of courageous young people.
Yes-U-Can is a multi-cultural organization founded to enhance the development of young adults who have demonstrated exceptional courage, drive, initiative and motivation. Our goal is to reward selected individuals with monetary grants to assist them in furthering their aspirations. To date, we have awarded over $170,000 to deserving individuals, which represents 85% of net proceeds. To make donations or join the Foundation as a volunteer, please call.
