Mission Statement

EVYP prepares Chicago youth to become first generation college graduates.

Description

Access to higher learning is a key component to ending the cycle of poverty. Yet today, just one in ten youth from low-income families will graduate from college by age 25. At East Village Youth Program, we work to not only prepare our youth for entering college but also ensure they graduate and go on to become successful young professionals. In 2016, 100% of EVYP youth were accepted to a four-year university. Beyond college access, 75% of EVYP college students graduate within five years. Through comprehensive college and career readiness services, EVYP builds a culture of achievement for youth and their families.
