The Y-Achievers program addresses critical issues affecting teen-age youth in grades 9–12. This weekly program targets educational, social, and character development. Each program participant gains essential life skills that are necessary in becoming productive members of society. A major focus is the development of college readiness skills through workshops, tutoring, career exploration activities and college tours.
GENERATION Y MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAMS
The Generation Y Middle School programs provide youth with alternatives to "street life" and a place that fosters their academic, social and physical development. The focal point of this program is to provide more opportunities for children attending low performing schools. Tutorial services and academic enrichment activities are designed to help students meet local and state academic standards in subjects such as reading and math.
FROM DAY 1
From Day 1 is a summer specialty camp to address an issue that continues to be a challenge in area high schools – the successful transition of 8th grade students into the high school setting. The From Day 1 camp will help incoming freshman start off with realistic goals and expectations for the years ahead. Working with school counselors, this program will address basic foundational needs like effective study habits, academic requirements and developing positive relationships. It will also provide opportunities for parental involvement and give the students a 'basic toolbox' for high school success. Fun field trips and recreational activities will also be a part of the summer activities.
