Yoga Gangsters is a volunteer based organization. We empower youth by addressing the symptoms of trauma and poverty (limited education, addiction, violence) through the practice of yoga. All of our programs are currently being offered free of charge to any partner facility, and are being taught by volunteers who have completed our 15 hour certification course.
All funds raised or acquired by YG are used for administrative and operation needs. We have an Executive Director, who manages all legal liabilities, manages financials and works directly for the BOD to carry out the mission of YG. We also use independent contractors for services needed such as bookkeeping, legal, accounting and volunteer/program management. Our operating budget also includes, marketing expenses, staff trainings, fundraising event production, and programming supplies.
