Who are we?

PYM is an initiative of Plaistow South Big Local with lead partner Newham Sixth Form College, and also in partnership with The Mix (REIN), Plaistow Community Neighbourhood, Eden Plaistow, and other local youth work agencies.

The aim of the initiative is to support and encourage young people’s and young adults’ enterprise, providing opportunities to hone marketing and other business skills, and to raise the positive profile of young people, of south Plaistow and PSBL. PYM is gives bursaries to young entrepreneurs, to cover part of their expenses, which means that they can make mistakes and learn from them without the fear of losing all of their investment. 

PSBL currently covers the majority of the costs of our markets but we are growing fast and are in need of new sponsors to help support PYM.

PYM is achieving its purpose, bringing our community together and helping our young entrepreneurs experiment with their ideas, but also to overcome their fears and inhibitions.
