College Readiness Programs Debuting This Summer

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for con dent teens today and contributing and engaged young adults tomorrow.

Area high school students are invited to join the YMCA for a number of College Readiness Programs this summer, including:

  • College tours to institutions such as Illinois State University and Loyola University Chicago
  • A lunch & learn session that includes a keynote address, informational and interactive breakout sessions and a panel discussion by community leaders and representatives
  • A comprehensive workshop about workplace success, building your brand and preparing for interviews
