About Us

Promising Youth Alliance, a new model for after-school excellence

Our goal is to maximize the impact of after-school care for at risk youth. By customizing and expanding their program offering and measuring their performance in academics, behavior, and their improved overall outlook, PYA is positioned to serve the whole child.

"Thousands of our young people, the future of our community, are not being 'saved by the bell' but left to their own devices, despite many great programs in Dallas. In PYA great programs are integrated to address the whole child. That is what makes PYA unique: we are a collaboration of the best that delivers superior programming when and where the child needs it."

— J. D. (Denny) Carreker, Chairman, Promising Youth Alliance
