Project Initiative: Northeastern helps provide Mass Promise Fellows at YES who help sustain and expand YES’s college prep program.
YES’s mission since the organization was founded in 1968 by Richard Williams has been to inspire and challenge youth with physical and mental activities that foster life-long respect for self, others, and the environment. The Mass Promise Fellow at YES will sustain and expand yes’s college prep program. The Fellow will serve 9th-12th grade students with college and career workshops, college tours and one-on-one advising. The Fellow will cover topics including study skills, academic and extracurricular planning, college application, financial aid planning, and transitioning from high school to college. The role encompasses direct service, capacity building, and curriculum development.
