Who is YAP!?

The Youth Ambassador Program (YAP!) is a partnership project between the National Park Service and Third Eye Unlimited where teens communicate national park themes through hip-hop culture and social media outreach. This includes creating music and videos about local, regional, and national themes and sharing them through sites such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and other music sharing sites.

It is funded by the National Park Service’s Youth Partnership Program. The culminating event is the Third Eye Open, a hip-hop festival where YAP! participants perform and a graffiti artist creates a piece inspired by national park themes.
