YESPVD focuses on YOUTH DRIVEN experiences.
The GOAL is to create experiences driven and facilitated by young change agents between the ages of 13 – 24
where it started
This was the primary model from 2015 – 2018. In 2019 we decided to rebrand and further build on the model. #TURNUPRI became #YESpvd! – Youth Empowerment Summit expanding age ranges to include out of school and college ages 13 – 24. Based on survey results from our participates it was asked that we host more events year round, add life essential skills and offer additional pathways. Now we have The #YESpvd! 365 Project and the parent agency Youth Empowerment Society.
