Susan, Talia & 4 others backed this

Fatima was talented and driven, but navigating the complexities of the college application process on her own was overwhelming: college visits, SAT prep, the college essay, applications, decisions. With YPIE's resources and support, Fatima was the first in her family to attend college. Life still wasn't easy, but Fatima's college degree has given her family a chance to overcome the cycle of poverty.

Programs

YPIE Scholars

The YPIE Scholars program prepares students for success in college and the 21st Century world. Beginning in 9th grade and continuing into college, YPIE Scholars are a community of students preparing for college, navigating the college application process, and successfully transitioning to college and beyond.

YPIE Scholars put in the hard work after school at the YPIE College Zone to become academically ready for college. They also receive coaching and support from YPIE staff based in their schools and adult mentors from across our community.

YPIE Fellows

To extend our reach to students who are just starting the college process, students can apply in 11th grade to become YPIE Fellows to receive support with the college application process and their transition to the first 2 years of college.

Volunteering + Events

Become a YPIE Volunteer

Volunteer with YPIE as a “Graduation Coach.” YPIE pairs volunteers with 9th grade students to meet one-on-one twice a month for all four years of high school. The goal is to build strong relationships with students, providing coaching and opportunities to students throughout high school.
