Positively Reinforcing Youth Development (PRYD), a 501(c) (3) organization was founded in April 2010 to enable Jersey City youth ages 5 – 18 to live their dreams, discover new possibilities within themselves and take on life’s challenges with determination and drive. PRYD is about building self-esteem and confidence and launching leaders. We are dedicated to motivating Jersey City youth to become focused in their everyday lives.

The goal of PRYD is to utilize progressive programs to encourage Jersey City youth to overcome subtle, societal messages that inhibit their potential and demean their value by equipping them with the life skills necessary to lead successful, independent, and self-fulfilling lives. Programs and services include: Mentorship Program, Educational Assistance, Career Development, Community Service, Teen Summit, Financial Literacy Program, Entrepreneurship Program, Performing Arts Club and Young Scholars and Future Leaders After School Program.
