The Youth Advocacy Project (YAP) was an advocacy, mentorship and befriending programme that promotes integration for young people in the asylum process in Ireland.

Young people are matched with a volunteer advocate who provides them with advice, information, support and friendship over the course of six months. Advocates also help to ensure the young person’s views are heard, advocating for them or empowering them to advocate on their own behalf.
