Yonkers Partners in Education To Provide Free SAT Tutoring

The new Yonkers Partners in Education (YPIE) organization is hard at work carrying out its first mission, to provide free SAT tutoring for 300 students from the City of Yonkers. Through the donations of the Pope Foundation and other organizations, the YPIE will fund test training by Kaplan for disadvantaged high school students.

YPIE is a public-private partnership between Yonkers public school educators and members of the business community. Its mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of means, have the same opportunities.

Future YPIE projects planned to enhance and supplement the public school curriculum include hands-on science programs, early literacy programs, music and art classes and leadership programs.
