Youth Empowerment Services is a non-profit organization that uses art as an avenue to success for Philadelphia students who have dropped out of high school.

The Untours Foundation made a short-term loan to YESPhilly during the infamous Pennsylvania state budget impasse,when state allocated funds were withheld from human service organizations as part of a political show-down. Although the Foundation usually makes loans to businesses, not nonprofits, we are responsive and believe that our resources should be on the street working for change as much as possible.
