Over the past 8 years, PYB has built a program, a staff and board team, an identity, a coalition of diverse and passionate people, and a sense of purpose and ambition, we have considerable room to grow and improve, as we are not yet transformative in the lives of thousands of children, youth, emerging adult leaders, and families.

Through the month of June, we are looking to raise funds to create transformative experiences for hundreds of young people through our 2022 Lace Up & Learn Up Summer Camp Series. We will continue to showcase our mission in action, illustrating the power and potency of our approach to helping young people positively change the trajectories of their lives.

We hope you will be inspired to join the PYB team and participate in ways that are meaningful to you. On behalf of the young people of PYB, we ask you to please consider making a tax-deductible, charitable contribution now, in support of summer programming!

Help us reach our fundraising goal this June! Combined with funding from the regional foundation and business communities, this will enable us to create effective robust, and meaningful programming over the summer months!

#FundraisingFriday Video Series

Over the next four weeks we will share personal stories from our participants of three of our programs that will inspire. Our hope is that you will come to know us and the work we do just a little bit better, and that you’ll see that a gift to PYB is a gift that will make a difference!

Every Monday, keep an eye out for a weekly email highlighting the upcoming week. Make sure to follow us on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter for daily content throughout the week. And last, but certainly not least, join us for our #FundraisingFriday Video Series on Facebook Live every Friday at 10 a.m. to hear from voices throughout the organization as they share more about PYB in their own words!
