How You Can Help

There are many opportunities and ways to support PYS and to share your talents and commitment to the youth of Pittsford. We are always looking for help with our special events and for community donations and sponsors to support our programming.


The Youth Advisory Board

PYS's Youth Advisory Board offers area students in grades 8-12 community service opportunities to participate in PYS projects and events, as well as the chance to sit on our Board of Directors. Meetings are scheduled each month at the Spiegel Community Center. Activities include planning and helping with Halloween Fest at St. John Fisher College, our Appeal letter mailing, Phone-a-thon, PYS Awareness week, Positively Pittsford and our signature fundraiser, the Duck Drop.

Attendance is not required but is encouraged at all of the meetings and you can choose which events you'd like to help with. This is a fun and worthwhile way to meet community service requirement and help a worthwhile organization and the people we serve.

If you are interested in participating on the Youth Advisory Board, please download the application, fill it out and send it to:
