What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Whitney M. YOUNG Scholars Program®

The Whitney M. YOUNG Scholars Program® was created in 1990 as a college readiness program for underrepresented youth throughout the Louisville Metropolitan area. The program annually admits high-potential underserved eighth-grade students who demonstrate academic promise. Students commit to participating in experiential outside-of-school Saturday morning and summer programs that prepare them academically, socially, and emotionally for high school graduation and the rigors of college. Programming is also provided for parents and guardians to help them become better advocates for their students and assist in the college selection process.

Population(s) Served

The College Transition Enrichment Program is an extension of WYSP, providing support for Scholars throughout their college years to guide them toward successful degree attainment. Emphasis is placed on early intervention to assure academic success and the retention of critical financial aid and scholarships. Additional support is provided for students experiencing academic challenges, along with guidance for students who need on-campus mental and emotional support services.
