YPIE believes that post-secondary success is key to creating meaningful and lasting improvements in the quality of life for our students and the communities where they live. Readiness for, access to, and persistence in college are essential to escape the cycle of poverty.

Our Mission

Yonkers Partners in Education (YPIE) partners with students to ensure they are ready for, enroll in, and complete college.
 
We confront the challenges of a low-income, urban school district by providing families with equitable access to the critical tools and services necessary for college success.

Our Vision

Students are lifelong learners equipped to thrive in the future economy and empowered to contribute to their communities and humanity.

Why Now?

Approximately 60% of all jobs (compared to 28% in 1973) require some form of post-secondary education
