A word from our Executive Director

Short and to the point. Summer came and went and at YSP we witnessed a record number of youth experience some truly successful stories of personal growth during our summer youth employment program.More than 120 participants were placed with over a dozen employer sites with whom we have partnered for paid internships in the areas of communications, marketing, accounting, information technology, health care, civic engagement, audio engineering, media, and business.The result: youth labeled “at risk” because of the neighborhoods where they live, or because of being part of minority groups, step up to the plate breaking all stereotypes showcasing true leadership skills. The only risk they are at is the risk to take over the future, and I can’t wait to see what they do with it!
