Summary describing your organization:: Project YANO is a 501(c)(3) organization, founded in 1984, that provides a counter-balance to the marketing of militarism. We give young people information they should have in order to see through the deceptive advertising and discover other ways to pursue their goals for job training, higher education and service to others. In addition to our direct outreach to local young people, we play a key leadership role nationally by supporting the development of similar organizations around the U.S.
