To ensure these supports are available in college, YES Prep has entered into formal partnerships with a diverse and impressive group of colleges and universities across the country. These partnerships enable YES Prep students to enroll in “cohorts.” These cohorts, or clusters, of students are designed to serve as mutually supportive communities within the larger college campus. Partner institutions provide structured support programs to complement YES Prep’s college counseling curriculum. Additionally, YES Prep has purposely sought out and secured partnerships with colleges and universities willing to meet the full demonstrated financial need of selected students.
Since the program’s inception in 2006, YES Prep has established 35 IMPACT Partners and Affiliates. At full capacity, YES Prep anticipates maintaining IMPACT partnerships with 50 diverse colleges and universities. In addition, more than 200 YES Prep students have matriculated to IMPACT partner schools over the last 8 years with 120 members of the Class of 2016 currently participating in the IMPACT Program on their high school campuses.
