The Philadelphia Youth Organization has been providing programs for disadvantaged youth in our city since 1989.  PYO programs include instructional baseball, basketball, and soccer leagues; high-level travel baseball, basketball, and soccer teams; and programs for prospective college students. 

The primary goal of each of PYO’s programs is to convey the importance and benefits of education to our participants. Coaches are required to monitor the academic performance of their players, and our leagues all feature an educational component.  Participants must submit report cards and deficiencies are addressed through one-on-one tutoring sessions. Also, we have been very successful in identifying academically-gifted children and preparing them to gain admission into some of the best schools in the area. Some of the schools that our kids currently attend, or have attended in the past, include:

  • William Penn Charter School
  • Chestnut Hill Academy
  • Germantown Friends School
  • Germantown Academy
  • Episcopal Academy
  • Haverford School
  • Malvern Prep
  • Devon Prep
  • La Salle College High School
  • St. Joseph’s Prep High School
  • The Peddie School
  • Westtown School
