The members of the Board of Directors of the East Village Youth Program are running in the Shamrock Shuffle 8K in Chicago on March 21. Any contribution that you can make is greatly appreciated and goes directly towards helping the kids of EVYP!

East Village Youth Program is an early college readiness program dedicated to preparing low-income youth for success in high school, college and beyond. The ultimate goal is to develop caring and capable community leaders who will act as role models for future generations. EVYP was incorporated as a not for profit organization in 1989 in the West Town community and has now expanded its services to Avondale as well. Our programs include after school programming for elementary (6th-8th) and high school students, tutoring, mentoring, a college program, an alumni association, a parent program and leadership council, a partnership with Mitchell Elementary School through an in-school program and Community School Initiative, and outreach services to the community. In addition, EVYP offers a scholarship to all students who graduate from high school and continue on to college.
