Why yespvd?

YESPVD! is dedicated to creating opportunities for under-served youth in the greater Providence area by providing social, educational and financial resources aligned to career and/or college pathways. 

YESPVD! provides a platform for young people that frames their own interests by way of educational experiences, professional development, life skills, networking opportunities and career pathways in order to be self-sufficient. 

YESPVD! Will serve as the bridge-building social anchor for the next generation.
