Academic Preparation

Summer Study for Success (SSFS) is the pinnacle of YES’ summer programs and is the most comprehensive, competitive and intensive academic opportunity for youth. This program exposes students to research and career exploration, alongside practitioners and experts in the fields of: Sport Science and Health, Business and Entrepreneurship, African American Studies, and Culinary Arts and Nutrition. SSFS is designed to enhance youths’ research, critical thinking, writing, and presentation skills. Students attend Friday research development workshops, during which they learn research methodology and generate their own research questions, hypotheses, data collection methods, and survey protocols. Students extrapolate their findings, synthesize their results into poster presentations and present their work before distinguished panelists. Students’ community-based research projects are supplemented by their weekly experiential learning classes, facilitated by their instructors.
