Penn’s Youth Initiative (PYI) is a nonprofit organization that partners with schools and youth organizations in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to help address the social and emotional challenges that adolescents face on a regular basis. By utilizing an evidence-based, peer reviewed curriculum, we conduct classroom presentations that get teens talking about relevant, age-appropriate topics with a fun spin. There is no better way to learn how to build healthy relationships!
Our enthusiastic Program Educators comprise an array of professionals with backgrounds in education, medicine, science, and humanities. Each one has met PYI’s standards of practice for professional development and are trauma-informed, culturally competent, and current on PA background checks.

ECHO is our social media campaign aimed at:
While teaching young people about relationships there is no doubt that lesson topics will touch on the social and emotional aspects of life. We would like to be clear, however, about what our content does:
We recognize that the social and emotional components of an individual’s health are vitally important to the balance of the whole person. Therefore, our approach is one of sensitivity with a lighthearted candor that facilitates an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance.
