Mission Statement

East Village Youth Program's mission is to encourage and prepare promising, under-served students from the Avondale neighborhood and surrounding communities for a college education. EVYP seeks to raise the aspirations of our youth and support them in becoming capable professionals and leaders in their communities, through the pursuit of higher education.

Description

We are a non-profit after-school college readiness program, serving both our core constituency and students from schools throughout the surrounding communities. Our long-term core program combines academic enrichment through tutoring, mentoring, college preparation, academic skill building, community service, parental support and scholarship assistance. Additionally we offer supplemental workshops to area schools which mirror the services offered to our core participants. EVYP programs foster academic achievement while providing positive developmental experiences which enhance self-esteem, civic and personal responsibility, confidence, independence and leadership skills.
