Yolanda Robinson, Founder and Executive Director

Yolanda Robinson grew up in a poverty stricken area, did not graduate high school, and became a teen mother. Despite all of this, she persevered and was inspired to start Arizona Facts Of Life (AZFOL) after she spent 8 years in the social services field observing the needs of today’s youth while drawing from her own experiences. During her time in social services she has beaten the odds stacked against her from being a teen mom. She earned her GED and made the decision to attend college, earning her Bachelors of Science degree in Family and Human Development from Arizona State University. Yolanda is utilizing her past experiences and observations through Arizona Facts of Life. She uses her past experiences in every facet of her organization in an attempt to make our youth understand the importance of education and that success is also possible in their lives. She strives to make it a place where our youth can be themselves while building assets that will make them successful in their lives. Arizona Facts of Life is an organization that strengthens our youth by providing positive mentors, working on the F.A.C.T.S. of life, and building self-worth into their lives; through her work with AZFOL she is providing hope to a population in need during a time in their lives where encouragement is critical.
