We already have a logo we like, but we could use some help in creating alternative versions of it (main, alternative, horizontal) in a variety of formats (jpg, png, and high quality Adobe). I want to build out our kit of ready-to-go logo files.
It will make it so much quicker and easier for us to provide the correct file types to people when they request them!
Partners for Youth with Disabilities (PYD) strives to create a world where young people with disabilities will be able to live with dignity and pride in who they are, and to lead self-determined lives filled with purpose. To make this happen, we build the skills and abilities of young people with disabilities, and increase the inclusivity of workplaces, organizations, and communities.
Despite progress made in disability rights over the past 30 years, individual and institutional ableism still exist in the world today. Disability remains highly stigmatized, and people with disabilities continue to be denied equal opportunity, access, and independence. We work to change this status quo.
PYD programs all provide youth and young adults with disabilities with three key things: self-confidence, community, and purpose. We build disability pride, leadership skills, healthy relationship skills, community involvement, and ensure that youth are successful in school and in seeking employment.
We currently run programs focusing on one-to-one mentoring, online mentoring, theater arts and career readiness training. These programs largely serve youth in the Greater Boston area, but we are starting to expand our reach across Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Maine through online mentoring.
In addition to our youth programming, PYD offers training and consultation to organizations around the country that are interested in becoming more inclusive to people with disabilities. We offer live trainings, online courses, webinars, and custom consulting.
Dorothy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was great at communicating with us, and delivered everything asked in an incredibly timely manner! She stuck to the deadline she said, and delivered a *very* high quality final product. She's one of the best volunteers I've been connected with on Catchafire and would heartily recommend her to anyone!
In many years as a freelancer, I have rarely had such a wonderful client - Steve was extremely clear about what he wanted, went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed to get the job done, and is simply a warm and genuine person, going out of his way to make sure this project would be a good fit for me and letting me know how helpful it is to his nonprofit. Great to know there are folks like him in the world!
