This icon signifies the review was contributed by a participant in the YP for Schools program.
YP for Schools is a partnership between YP and school/parent organizations, in which YP makes donations to schools and other participating organizations whose members share ratings and reviews (positive or negative), photos, and other helpful business information on YP.
Some of the reviewed businesses may be YP advertisers or may have provided goods/services of value to participants or paid to be promoted as a Sponsor of the YP for Schools program. To encourage honest and forthright reviews, whether favorable or unfavorable, donations are made to participating organizations without regard to the content or sentiment of the individual reviews contributed by participants or to the status of the rated businesses as Advertisers or Sponsors.
We created YP for Schools because YP believes in helping communities and their local businesses grow, and because we've found that school communities are insightful, trustworthy and knowledgeable about the local businesses they use. When school community members share local business information they help their school community and local residents make informed decisions about the businesses they choose.
To ensure that the information submitted by participants is helpful and accurate, the YP for Schools program has been designed with several important controls. These include limiting the program to closed communities of invitation-only participants who can monitor the contributions of their peers for quality and accuracy, as well as having a team of professional YP monitors who check the information contributed by participants to ensure it complies with our publishing standards.
YP for Schools has helped Oakmont High School immensely. It was easy to implement, the school community embraced the program, and loved seeing local recommendations from fellow parents. - Sondra Myles, Assistant Principal, Oakmont High School
