On October 4, YES Prep and KIPP expanded their partnership by hosting a joint college fair at NRG Park. The college fair was attended by 1,934 YES Prep juniors and seniors, nearly 1,500 KIPP students, and representatives from 150 colleges and universities.
YES Prep and KIPP have hosted a college fair for their students for the last nine years. They joined forces to celebrate their 10th anniversaries this year, deepening a partnership that leverages organizational strengths and economies of scale. “We embrace organizations like KIPP who have similar missions to ours because you can influence far more children’s futures through partnership than you can alone. By making college accessible to more students, we will ultimately transform Houston,” said YES Prep CEO Mark DiBella.
