YAFA AMERICAN COMMUNITY CENTER
New York, NY
We serve Yemeni residents both in the US and abroad.
Yafa American Community Center (YACC) is a 501(c)3 organization created in 2015 when a group of Arab Americans from Yafa, South Yemen, in and around New York City, recognized a need for connection, recreation, education, and organization in the ever-growing and thriving Yafa community. Determined to meet that need, these champions established YACC. Hundreds of Brooklyn residents have gained access to community programs since our founding.
YACC offers a variety of programs and events at our Brooklyn facility including youth sports, cultural classes, festivals, civic education, immigration support, leadership courses, and more.
Additionally, we help members support family and friends living in Yemen and are currently establishing humanitarian projects abroad.
