Nonprofit Start Up Fund
Progressive People Movement, Inc., also known as PPM, is a 501 c3 nonprofit organization founded in 2010 by Orayne Williams . The organization aims to provide an outlet for at risk youth, such as but not limited to homeless and incarcerated youth, through various services which they do not have easy access to. Through mentoring, college readiness, advocacy, life skills workshops and scholarships the goal of the organization is to create self dependent youth who are equipped with skills and knowledge to overcome their daily obstacles.
Last Fall, Progressive People Movement Inc (PPM) launched its first annual back-to-school scholarship to assist a first semester college student with books and school supplies. The first scholarship was awarded to Krystel Campuzano in the form of a $100 Amazon gift card.
Krystel is currently a Freshman at New York City College of Technology.
We are currently looking to expand the organization and make a difference in the lives of at risk youths. With your support we will be able to provide more scholarships, college mentorships and impact the lives of more youth.
