Networked Supports for Education and Training
Working with schools, existing organizations, and programs, we connect youth to a network of retired educators who provide mentorship and educational support to youth as they develop the skills and abilities that will lead to long term confidence and success.
Helping to develop a young person’s connection to their community is key. PETYR’s mentors are professional community members giving back to their community by providing ongoing educational support and career advice as youth develop the attitude, skills, and knowledge that it takes to be successful before and after graduation.
Develop Skills and Tool Literacy
The PETYR PROJECT reduces barriers and connects young people with the educational supports, tools and training needed to be successful in their futures. From literacy supports and math upgrades, drivers’ training and safety certifications, to trades gateways and and short term work experience - PETYR provides opportunities for youth at risk to accumulate the education and training needed to set them on the path to confidence and successful career progression.
The PETYR PROJECT provides the flexibility to meet with youth where they are and walk with them as they grow into their potential in life.
