Developing a Sense of Preparedness and Confidence

Ensuring students have basic needs for school encourages engagement 

and fosters belonging. Being prepared impacts focus and maximizes

 the potential for success.

School Supply Impact Report

Teachers who participated in a School Supply Impact survey reported class preparedness accounts for 94% of learning success.

Backpack 2 School

Each year PYE provides school aged kids grades 5-12 with backpacks full of school supplies so they are ready to start the school year off right. We obtain lists from area schools to ensure we are providing exactly what they need, and we count on our partners and supporters who participate by donating many of the items. Then we host an event to distribute the backpacks and give the kids a celebration before start day.
