For 25 years EVYP has provided high-quality college resource and support services to low-income, primarily Latino youth. Starting our journey in the East Village neighborhood of Chicago in 1989, today EVYP serves our students and their families at our location in the Avondale community. The mission of EVYP is to encourage and prepare underserved youth for high education and career success. EVYP’s goal is to increase the probability that its participants will enroll in a four-year college or university and graduate. EVYP will create a culture of achievement that empowers underserved youth, their families, and the community to access and utilize higher education to lead more fulfilling lives.
