Culturally sensitive and competent services for African-American youth between the ages of 14- 18 in various counties within Maryland have traditionally been very limited. In seeking to respond to this void, in 2001 Pride Youth Services, Inc. was established and designed its services to assist and prepare youth in making empowering choices as they confront life’s challenges. While making significant contributions to African-American youth and their families, PYS Inc. is also well suited to provide culturally appropriate services to multi-cultural youth populations. PYS Inc. services have positively impacted the lives of hundreds of young people and their families.
