WPY works to ensure that the wealth of resources in and around Waltham are available for the youth and families who need them most. We facilitate high-impact community partnerships that support health and wellness, leadership development, and economic opportunity for Waltham youth while working to address long-standing structural inequities.
Convene diverse stakeholders to work collectively and strategically toward improved opportunities and outcomes for Waltham's youth.
Provide support and capacity building to community partners to help sustain and enhance current programming.
WPY won a five-year grant from the Cummings Foundation in 2020!
