NAAAPY stands for the National Association of African American Parents and Youth. A non-profit that will be launched in 2022. At this present time it is being housed as a program of The Knowledge Shop. Many Black and African American families, parents and guardians felt that there was no organization addressing their needs and more importantly those of their children. In October of 2021 a group of Black parents got together to change just that.
