The world of youth development is boundless and substantial in its offerings; it also sometimes makes decisions difficult for youth about what to choose. Some programs are too specific to effectively address the needs of kids, and others may be too general; thus, the potential for kids making no choice at all. NYPUM helps with that decision making by offering both types of programming.
NYPUM benefits by being “adaptive programming”. Development is specific or general because it's tied to a mentor. We have practiced, and perfected this concept over the last 50 years.
In our own comparisons with different youth development programs that seek to reach the same outcome, NYPUM has consistently proven to quickly affect the youth’s social, emotional and psychological development positively using focused mentoring.
