Community Service

The YPG’s community service initiative, YPG Cares, was formed to promote our mission to give junior employees a chance to build a network outside of their own publishing houses and to support literacy-related intiatives in New York City’s volunteer community.

If you would like to be on our distribution list to receive emails about YPG Cares events to promote literacy and reading in the New York City area, please sign up at http://bit.ly/YPGcares.
