YES Prep Public Schools

IMPACT College Partnership Program

Since 2006 colleges and universities across the country have partnered with YES Prep Public Schools under one single mission: to recruit and enroll YES Prep Alumni with the hopes of cutting the college-access gap for students from low-income communities.  

Partner institutions provide structured support programs to complement YES Prep’s college counseling curriculum and alumni support program.  YES Prep purposely seeks out and secures 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 over 30 IMPACT Partners and Affiliates.  Last year, more than 295 YES Prep students have attended an IMPACT partner.  Looking towards the future, 450 seniors from the Class of 2020 are currently participating in IMPACT Programs.
