Mentoring + Professional Development
After taking our College 101 course, high school students can enroll in our 6 part mentoring and professional development program. These students are paired with mentors who are current college students at a local university. On Saturday mornings, students meet with their mentors and program leaders teach developmental topics such as college admissions, scholarships, resume writing, job interview skills, entrepreneurship, personal finance and trade careers.
All students that participate in our College 101, Mentoring or Professional Development programs have the option of enrolling in our College Tracking System and receiving a YGC College Counselor. Our industry leading College Tracking System monitors and assists students' progress towards college from 9th grade through senior year of high school. We ensure that students and parents are on track towards reaching their college goals. The system includes advice, information and reminders about college applications, financial aid deadlines, SAT test dates, college visits, scholarship recommendations and more.
