Our Mission

YPIE’s mission is to increase the number of Yonkers Public School students who complete a post-secondary program that prepares them for a successful career. YPIE partners with the Yonkers Public School District, business and philanthropic communities and higher education institutions and relies on detailed data to drive our decisions and programs. We believe that post-secondary success is key to meaningful and lasting improvements in the quality of life for our students and community.
