My name is Joseph Dorri. I’m an educator, researcher, speaker, and author. A great adage states, “Be who you needed when you were younger.” Today my work centers around youth development. After facing my own obstacles after high school and during college, I saw the need for supportive information and resources that support teens and ‘twenty-somethings’.
As a result, I have established the Project for Youth Empowerment That Scales (PYETS). The organization puts young people in the driver’s seat of their lives. It provides them with the knowledge, resources, and tools necessary to make informed decisions about college, career, and life.
Furthermore, I am about to release a book that helps young people navigate college, maximize their time while there, and come out with better opportunities. It is based on decades of research and years of experience. You can learn more here.
My purpose is to use my knowledge and expertise to help emerging adults find their purpose, live a fulfilling life, and take actions for a successful future.
I present and speak on the topics of success in life and college. This work is based on my research and first-hand experiences. For a review of my presentation to a stellar group of high school students, see the Presentations section of this website.
In addition, I mentor emerging adults in the Pasadena, CA and online.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to being in touch!
