Youth Enrichment Services (YES) was recently selected to participate in a pilot program with the Massachusetts Promise Fellowship (MPF) that allows us to remain as a partner for two years rather than reapplying each year. This program includes the two MPF positions at YES: Leadership Corps Success Coordinator and College Prep Coordinator.
At YES, Mass Promise Fellows spend their service year working with teens in the YES Academy program. The Leadership Corps Success Coordinator supports teens in grades 8 and 9 by facilitating workshops, volunteer projects, and activities focused on leadership development and academic engagement. The College Prep Coordinator serves teens in grades 10-12 with college and career workshops, college tours, and one-on-one advising in study skills, academic and extracurricular planning, college application process, financial aid planning, and transitioning from high school to college.
Participating in this pilot program helps continue to strengthen the partnership between YES and MPF. YES has hosted Mass Promise Fellows for their service years for 10 years.
About Mass Promise Fellowship: The Mass Promise Fellowship at Northeastern University is dedicated to providing support and resources to emerging leaders across the Commonwealth by sending 40 AmeriCorps Promise Fellows at non-profit organizations, city agencies, and schools each year.
