We are Pride Youth Services (PYS)

We help African-American youth expand their potential, achieve their goals, and feel a well-earned sense of PRIDE. Since 2001, PYS has stood hand in hand with our nation’s inner-city youth, providing the resources and skills to help mentor and grow the next generation of black leaders.

Our Programs
