P.R.Y.D.E. (Partners Reaching Youth thru Developmental Education) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to educate and empower underprivileged youth through music, sports, culinary, entertainment and mentoring programs. Your donation will help P.R.Y.D.E. provide mentoring services to at-risk youth. P.R.Y.D.E. identifies children who are at risk of having a turbulent transition into adulthood and offers them a positive support system along with life options to help them avoid the pitfalls that can derail their lives. The goal is to empower underprivileged at-risk youth to make positive changes. P.R.Y.D.E. provides them with a solid foundation which allows them to develop their creative talents, improve their educational experience, strengthen their cognitive skills and become successful members of society. What makes our program distinguish itself from others reaching at-risk youth is the combined effort of separate entities creating an exciting and unique umbrella program.
