Building Community, Building Lives

I didn’t like school before, but at PYB I just get to be me.  I don’t have to fit in.  I don’t have to even try to fit in because everybody fits in at PYB.

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.
