BECOME A SCHOLAR
WHAT IS A YES SCHOLAR?
YES Scholars are scholar-athletes in the YES Mentorship Program. Once accepted into the program, a scholar is connected with a mentor who is their one-on-one guide through the entire college process.
Through our mentorship program, scholars follow the YES System for Success: a digital planner that helps scholars set, organize, track and achieve their goals.
Our goal is to empower YES Scholars to leverage their college experience to find success in life.
IT IS 100% FREE TO BE A YES SCHOLAR.
