What are you looking for in youth who are applying?

We are looking for youth who have not had opportunities to participate in these kinds of programs before.

We wish to provide rich experiences that will motivate, excite, and teach youth about opportunities and paths in higher education.

In the past we’ve worked with youth who had not considered getting a degree beyond high school, youth who had never traveled outside of their home city, youth/chaperones who spoke no English (all our programs are bilingual in English and Spanish), youth who knew nothing about birds, youth who had dropped out of school, youth who were highly motivated and were seeking new opportunities, youth who were looking for mentors and role models to guide them, and more.

We will interview all youth and adults who are nominating youth before accepting participants into the program.
