Youth Development Organization (YDO) is growing a vibrant community of self-motivated learners and leaders by offering high-quality educational activities, developing supportive long-term relationships, and providing personalized opportunities for success.

YDO engages over 300 students (Grades 3 & up) in Lawrence, the poorest city in Massachusetts. Our kids come from households that are 74% low-to-moderate income; 96% Hispanic, Black or other minority; 37% single parent; and 52% female-led.

Through YDO’s programs & collaborations, these underserved students are able to participate in out-of-school enrichment spanning STEM disciplines, the performing & fine Arts, and leadership development. YDO wraps student engagement in support measures that lower barriers to participation. This approach enables YDO to create intentional, personalized pathways for students to broaden their exposure and build upon their strengths en route to post-secondary education and career success.
