The Middle School Program is for students in grades 6-8. In this program, youth get academic support through tutoring, while also participating in service and leadership activities that help youth build character, develop social skills, and gain confidence. Our goal is to help students successfully navigate middle school, graduate 8th grade on time, and become prepared for high school.

This year, PV is serving 160 middle school youth across three sites, including PV’s Youth Center, John C. Haines School, and James Ward School

Join the Middle School Program:


These programs support academic success by helping youth develop effective study skills and build their knowledge of core subjects.


  • After school homework tutoring
  • Math Motivators

  • Enrichment activities


Community service is an integral part of positive youth development. Service learning aims to foster a sense of social responsibility in youth by building awareness, fostering positive attitudes, and providing meaningful service opportunities.



Students get an introduction to leadership by learning about their personal strengths and the importance of building community through teamwork. Using games, activities, and group discussions, students learn how they can be leaders in everyday life.
