Colby College announced their IMPACT partnership with YES Prep earlier this week. YES Prep’s IMPACT program began in 2006 as a way to boost college persistence for YES Prep graduates. As part of IMPACT, YES Prep has entered into formal partnerships with a diverse and impressive group of colleges and universities across the country. These partnerships enable YES Prep students to enroll in “cohorts.” These cohorts, or clusters, of students are designed to serve as mutually supportive communities within the larger college campus. Partner institutions provide structured support programs to complement YES Prep’s college counseling curriculum. As an IMPACT affiliate, Colby will meet full demonstrated financial need and provide support for all admitted YES Prep students. To read more, click here.
