The pursuit of a college education has grown increasingly challenging for many young people, especially teens from low-income families and schools with high dropout rates. The Community YMCA's Achievers college readiness program gives at-risk teens the support they need to graduate from high school, enroll in college and realize their full potential.
Since 2006, more than 1,000 teens have benefitted from this unique, comprehensive program that provides nurturing mentors, leadership development, access to SAT preparation classes, college tours, scholarship seminars and other college and career readiness support.
Our program works – 100% of the 17 high school teens who completed Y Achievers in June 2016 are now attending college!
Help us continue to give disadvantaged teens in Monmouth County, New Jersey a path to a bright future with a donation to support the Y Achievers program.
Your gift of $25 will help cover the cost of materials for SAT preparation for one student; $50 will cover a student’s program fee and $100 will help underwrite the cost for a student to attend the annual college tour.
In this season of giving, we thank you for helping disadvantaged students achieve their potential and supporting the Y in building a better us.
