 Welcome to our site. Please feel free to look around and get to know more about our organization. Youth Opportunities Development is a Pittsburgh-based program dedicated to ensuring peaceful, prosperous communities through the mentoring, education, and empowerment of youth. 

Please consider donating to our Coats For Kids Fundraiser. We are trying to raise money to provide quality, warm coats to the entire 2nd grade class in Clairton, Pa. These students were absent for a lot of days last school year and it is a walking district with no busing. It can get pretty cold walking to school in the morning. Clairton is a city that struggles economically and almost 100% of the students qualify for free/reduced lunch. Therefore, our youth Leadership team decided this collaboration with Operation Warm was a perfect idea for a project. Our new goal is currently $548. Click here to donate

We also welcome community feedback and discussion.
