Give Underserved Youth Academic Access and Career Readiness

Young Professionals in Training (YPiT) is a mentoring program for students grades 5-12 from underserved populations in Auburn and surrounding communities. The program focuses on college and career readiness, as well as social and emotional development.

Although Auburn University offers a wide array of summer enrichment camps, most of these programs are not affordable for YPiT students. Many underserved students are not provided with opportunities for summer academic enrichment experiences and often return to school further behind their peers.

This Tiger Giving Day, we want to provide the YPiT students the opportunity to attend summer enrichment programs at Auburn University. Student participants will learn from positive role models. They will develop confidence, self-reliance, independence, social skills and a sense of belonging. 

Student participants will also have the opportunity to meet people from a variety of backgrounds and receive academic support as well as college preparation. If we exceed our goal this year, the extra funds will go towards additional summer enrichment initiatives.
