PEPY’s programs began with environmental education and now focus on youth leadership and supplementary education. The programs are based on the premise that improving education, providing training, and stimulating creative ideas builds capacity for people to achieve their dreams, and provides opportunities for people to make the changes they want to see in their own communities.
PEPY’s 12 core values are:
Commit to our unending potential for improvement
Think unreasonably. Dream BIG
Focus on impact, not inputs. Invest in people, not things
Be strategic in our choices, and thoughtful in our plans
Collaborate, both within and beyond
Create and sustain a culture of open feedback
Work with, not for
Do more with less. Be responsible in our environmental and economic choices.
Be humble in success, transparent in failure and share the lessons we learn
Nurture the creative and quirky PEPY culture
Stay connected with the PEPY family. Wave until you can’t see them anymore.
Live the principles we promote. Work with integrity
