Project for Youth Empowerment
Welcome to PYETS!
Do you wonder what it takes to have a fulfilling and successful life?
This website is designed to help you along your life journey. It covers topics that include options after high school, college success, career success, community involvement, and financial, mental, social, and physical health.
You'll learn more about yourself, be better able to make wise decisions, and gain tools to help yourself on your way to a successful, fulfilled and happy life.
The information here is based on first-hand experiences and decades of research findings. Originally a several hundred page manuscript with several resources, it's now online for ease of access.
Begin with A Starting Point section and then work your way forward to College, Career and Good Work*.
You can learn more about the Project by going to the About the Project page and reach out by using the Contact tab above.
Book coming soon: The Good Student - Finding Purpose and Success in College
"I recommend this book to prospective first generation college students and parents. It has the potential of creating a tailwind in college for those who read it."
-Dr. Frank Chang, Registrar and Professor of Education, University of Southern California
This website gives great advice and insight on how to appreciate yourself, set your goals and accomplish them!

"All parents should use this resource as a guide for their children."
-LeeAnn B., Homeschooling parent
"Through a process of self-discovery, PYETS offers a practical guide and resource for young people facing the challenge of “What do I do now?” Often, young people are unprepared for evaluating their financial, social, emotional and physical resources. This website offers both well-researched information and assessment tools enabling young people to find out for themselves options that fit their own personal goals. I found this website to be a valuable resource for both young people and the adults that support them."
-Nancy J. Lavelle, Ph.D., Founder, President/CEO, Total Education Solutions, Inc.
"Joseph Dorri is a gifted, inspirational speaker who connects at a fundamental level with college and high school students. He has a compelling, visceral personal story coupled with genuine insights in how to navigate the avalanche of decisions young people face in this era."
-Ron Vincent, Retired High School Teacher, Modesto High School, AVID Instructor
"PYETS website provides an outstanding resource for young people to assess their mental and physical health, their readiness to attend college, and to examine optimal choices for the future job market. This site is clear, accessible, and well-organized. It needs to be made widely available to teens through high schools, social media, and other venues they frequent."
-Edmund Bourne, Ph.D. author of The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook, 6th Edition
