What's Coming Up For YOU
August 26, 2013 | Chicago, IL
Youth Options Unlimited (YOU), Erie’s after-school expanded learning program geared for teenagers to achieve their highest academic potential is very excited for the upcoming school year. YOU offers ten unique areas of program to enhance formal classroom activities, which include STEM Initiative Workshops, Math and Science Workshops, Visionaries (Multi-media Internships/After School Matters) and sports camps.
We are underway in recruiting both youth and mentors to participate in Tutoring to Educate for Aims and Motivation (T.E.A.M.), a twice weekly mentoring program where professionals guide high school students to their end-goal of reaching college. This year we have 21 seniors in the program getting ready to start the application process for college. We are excited to extend our 15 year track-record of 100% graduation and 98% higher learning placement in the 2013 – 2014 school year. This academic year, T.E.A.M. will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary helping to foster positive adolescent growth.
We are also reaching out to our TEAM alumni more than before. We are excited to learn what they are up to—if they have completed college and have gone on to continue their dreams.
We kick off our school-year programming on August 26th, the TEAM program on September 11th, Scientists for Tomorrow on September 16th, and After School Matters (ASM) internship programs on October 1st. You can find a detailed description of YOU’s programming by visiting YOU’s page.
