Building Community, Building Lives



Yedhic's Story

Yedhic came to PYB unsure of what she wanted in a career. Shortly after joining PYB’s technology program she discovered that she had a passion for technology. Yedhic says, “From general IT and networking to robotics and HTML, I wanted to discover it all, and I found that I was good at it too.” Yedhic worked hard and eventually earned her CompTia IT Fundamentals certificate and became a job lead at PYB.

6 months into her AmeriCorps service through PYB, Yedhic was offered a six month internship as a Tech Assistant with HomeForward. After completing her internship Yedhic returned to PYB to complete her AmeriCorps service and earn the education award which she will use to help her attend Mount Hood Community College’s cybersecurity program.  At PYB Yedhic found a passion, and she utilized her resources to their fullest potential to propel herself forward in her career.
