Description

YESPhilly (aka Youth Empowerment Services) is a 501(c)3 non-profit agency whose mission is to develop a broad base of opportunities for Philadelphia's out-of-school youth to prepare them to become successful, self-sufficient adults. Since its inception, YESPhilly has provided opportunities to over 200 high school drop-outs per year. We have developed an educational model that prepares students for college and careers by tying together personal development, media arts and technology skills, and academic instruction to meet Pennsylvania standards for high school.

YESPhilly operates a School, a GED program, and a robust arts, media, and technology after-school program. Our classes are small and are designed to engage students interest, give them opportunities to learn by doing, and develop their creativity. The after-school program gives them added opportunities to develop their 21st century skills through activities that link media arts, business, and social action. We are a one-stop shop for out-of-school youth looking to correct their life trajectory and secure a better future for themselves and their families.
