YES identifies promising students from underserved communities and equips them with the resources, support, and academic skills required for success through high school, college, and career.
For bright, ambitious students from impoverished neighborhoods, a college degree represents a clear path out of the crippling cycle of poverty. But potential is stifled by their circumstances: a lack of awareness, exposure, and opportunity due to financial, educational, and social inequality. YES prepares and empowers students at a young age to transcend those boundaries and removes the financial obstacles that would otherwise limit their success.
