Mission

PYD empowers youth with disabilities to reach their full potential by providing transformative mentoring programs, youth development opportunities, and inclusion expertise. We motivate youth to reach their personal, educational, and career goals and guide organizations in becoming more inclusive.

Services Provided

We currently run programs focusing on mentoring, career readiness, theater arts, and leadership development. These programs largely serve youth in the Greater Boston area, but our mentoring program has an online component that is open to young adults from across the United States.
