Youth Programmes

Yale Young African Scholars

The YYAS Programme builds and strengthens the capacity, knowledge and access to information for African students to US College admissions procedures and policies.

Through workshops tackling the college application process, essay writing tips and SAT Test preparations, YYAS scholars are assisted with preparing themselves for college admissions abroad.

In addition, each scholar is paired with a mentor, preferably with US college admission experience, who guides a scholar on the role of extra-curricular activities prior to joining a university, choosing what to study for a career path as well as handling international student culture shock in university.
