Partners For Youth (PFY) is a non-profit 501 C(3) corporation founded by former mayor, Pam Miller, in 1995 in response to circumstances which followed the 1994 shooting and killing of an African American youth by a white police officer. The resulting civil disturbance and public discussion that took place over the ensuing months brought into focus the disaffection and despair felt by a segment of our youth. Partners For Youth was formed to help coordinate services and ensure that the resources in our community are made available to every segment of our population. To do this, PFY acts as a clearinghouse for community contributions - including money and in-kind assistance - to programs serving young people, and helps coordinate activities so the programs can work as cooperatively and effectively as possible. It is this cooperation among community agencies, institutions, and citizens which is so essential to provide meaningful programs which will put community resources to work where they are most needed.
1) Increase community awareness of PFY through enhanced marketing and public relations efforts in order to strengthen our sustainability and organizational value.
2) Maintain a knowledgeable and diverse board through on-going development and training opportunities.
3) Through increased funding, facilitate and strengthen services, programming and opportunities for youth.
