Partnership fosters creativity, strategy, and new ways to achieve sustainable impact. At the core of our partnerships is a common goal to ensure young people have access to education and employment experiences. Over the years, these collaborations have resulted in a system of services that has created opportunities for over 225,000 young people in Philadelphia.
In 2020, we achieved record contributions, opportunities, and impact through our dedicated partnerships. More than 45 employers made up our employer network and of those 45, 23 directly served young people. We worked with 80 program partners to operate more than 100 programs and were supported by more than 50 public, private, and philanthropy organizations along the way. By the end of the year, we had employed 6,000 young people during the summer and over 1,000 young people during the school year. Even during a pandemic, we were able to illustrate why partnerships and collaboration are vital cornerstones of PYN’s success.
