Thank you for your interest in Horizons for Youth's Young Professional Board (YPB). YPB was established to support Horizons for Youth’s commitment to helping children recognize and achieve their full potential. We believe that with the proper support, every child can achieve academic success. Regardless of academic ability level, socio-economic status, or race, students learn and gain the skills necessary to graduate high school, continue on to college, and ultimately, successfully enter the workforce.
To support this mission, each year we volunteer at and host the following events: • On Cloud Nine Gala • Bowl-A-Thon• Boat Cruise• NFL Survivor Pool & Game Watch• Bachelor Bracket & Finale Watch
