In the Beginning:

    The Pittsfield Youth Workshop was founded in 1986 by a group of local citizens concerned about youth in the community. The town has come to rely on the Pittsfield Youth Workshop to provide a variety of programs and trips to meet the needs of the growing youth population. The youth in our community deserve every opportunity to enrich their lives, and PYW has been there to provide this much needed service for over 32 years! PYW is open to youth in grades 6-12 from Pittsfield and surrounding communities.

    The Pittsfield Youth Workshop is a private non-profit organization registered in the State of NH as a 501(c) 3 organization. PYW is funded by grants from the the Sanderson Trust; The NH Charitable Foundation; Globe Community Fund; Granite United Way; The Greater Lakes Region Children's Auction; Merrimack County Savings Bank Foundation, Client Fees; Fundraising efforts and Donations.
