Scholarship Program

We receive many requests for support in attending our adult in-person and online trainings. In both 2018 and 2019 PYE subsidized $270K in scholarships to make our adult training programs available to people in the youth serving field who traditionally are underpaid for their services.

All of the trainings and workshops at Partners for Youth Empowerment are either free, or offered on a sliding fee scale so that participants can choose a rate that fit their ability to pay. If your circumstances do not allow you to attend at our posted rates, you are welcome to request a scholarship. Our goal is to meet the increasing demand.

When requesting a scholarship, be sure to let us know what training or workshop you would like a scholarship for. We will contact you when space becomes available for a scholarship participant in a workshop or training that you indiated an interest in. Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. Please understand that our scholarship opportunities are limited and may not be immdiately available.
