About AOPYO

The Apprentice of Peace Youth Organization was founded by Ronnie and Pos, two good friends who found Tai Chi as a common ground for passion. It is their belief that practicing Tai Chi can prove beneficial to one's whole-person development. From there, they decided to educate the community about the basics of Tai Chi.

Our Story

Though beginning with Tai Chi, that is no longer the sole purpose of this organization. The Apprentice of Peace Youth Organization began targeting different areas of need in the community in terms of equity. The team slowly started to grow with their own focuses. Projects around the organization revolve around educating youth in schools about Tai Chi, providing mentoring support, creating pathways for employment through certifications, and combatting youth violence by addressing its intersectionality with mental health. 

All this work to better the community will be impossible to achieve without this wonderful team of passionate people.
