YES Prep Public Schools

Alumni Affairs

Once our students graduate from high school, the real work of earning a college degree begins.

Our first-generation, college-bound students often face a variety of challenges – academic, socio-emotional, cultural, financial or all of the above. They also follow many different paths on their way to a college degree. Our alumni team is dedicated to providing the support and access to resources our students need to be successful to, through and from college into a career.

Collective efforts and support services include:
  • Transition programming and support (from senior year of high school through freshman year of college)
  • Social media outreach and information sharing, email blasts, phone calls, site visits, and periodic mailings to maintain communication with alumni
  • Organized alumni events throughout the year
  • Formal collaboration with local universities to provide increased support
  • IMPACT program support 
  • Individualized support for alumni returning to college

About the Alumni Affairs Team

The Alumni Affairs team works year-round to provide YES Prep students with support and resources that help them to lead choice-filled lives.

Family Resources

The Alumni Affairs team has a College First-Year Starter Kit: Conversation Guide. This resource provides conversation guides for our families to have with their children, beginning in the Spring of their Senior Year of High School through their first-year of college.
