Elevate the Future

This year has been like no other for our students and their families.  Yonkers was one of the hardest hit communities in our area -- from the pandemic to economic challenges and racial inequities. 


In lieu of our annual gala, YPIE is launching a special fundraising campaign to ensure we are there for our hundreds of students who are determined to stay on track to and through college.

Hear our YPIE Student Voices:  On October 27th, YPIE hosted a panel featuring our students talking about their perspectives on navigating a pandemic and their hopes for the future.  Listen to event recording here!
