NYPS is a urban, creative, intellectual, socially forward movement for youth and young adults.
The mission is to empower (but not limited to) black and LGBTQ young adults through leadership development, networking and collaborative events, in order to better improve their quality of life.
NYPS is a volunteer run, membership based movement. We focus on grassroots marketing and fundraising techniques to not only promote the quality of life of our members, but the quality of life of the community as a whole.
Founded in Chicago, IL in 2003, it currently has members across the U.S., Canada and select countries in Africa.
