"...the deep personal connections that are developed between students and adults participating in the YPIE experience will pave the way for students to persist in creating meaningful lives and careers" -- Maxine, YPIE Volunteer

YPIE is very grateful for our community of volunteers who make a difference in the lives of Yonkers students every day.  Join our community of dedicated caring volunteers!
Note:  Due to COVID-19, all volunteer sessions are happening online.

YPIE Graduation Coach

YPIE pairs volunteers with 9th grade students to develop meaningful relationships that continue throughout high school. YPIE Coaches meet individually with their students twice a month and become invaluable mentors and role models on our students' path to college.

YPIE Essay Coach

Our YPIE students have tremendous stories to share! Guide our YPIE students as they craft their college essays from the spring of 11th grade through the fall of 12th grade.

YPIE Peer Tutor

Do you have subject matter expertise in one of these areas: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II/Trigonometry, Living Environment, Earth Science, Chemistry, or Physics? Share your knowledge with our YPIE students after school on weekdays.


To learn more about being a YPIE Graduation Coach, please sign up for an Info Session.
