Narrative

Partners for Youth with Disabilities, Inc. (PYD) is committed to empowering young people with disabilities to reach their full potential for personal development. It is the vision of Partners for Youth with Disabilities, Inc. (PYD) to be the leading organization in Massachusetts and on a national level that promotes mentoring programs for youth and young adults with disabilities. This will be achieved through development of model one-to-one and group mentoring services that improve the lives of young people in areas such as self-esteem, independent living, recreation, health, leadership, education, and career development. Making Healthy Connections is a peer mentoring program for adolescents and young adults with disabilities and/or special health care needs ages 14-22. Most services free. We also offer training and technical assistance on inclusion and mentoring youth with disabilities.
