Building Community, Building Lives

At PYB they’ll help with your negative stuff and help you make it better.  When I got to PYB all I knew about talking with teachers was how to argue with them.  They showed me how to deal with stuff differently.  Now I can talk with them about anything.

The mission of Portland YouthBuilders is to support young people who are committed to changing their lives to become self-sufficient, contributing members of the workforce and their community.

For many young people, the path to success in life is neither straight nor clear. PYB offers hope and a second chance at success for youth age 17-24 whose experiences with poverty, violence, drugs, hunger and loss have interrupted their route to success. Serving more than 200 young people a year, we offer a program of high school completion, vocational training, counseling, and support that helps our students find a new path and a clear vision of success filled with pride, leadership, and commitment to community.
