Y Teen Achievers
The Y Teen Achievers Program, a signature program of the Y of the USA, is the Y of Greenville's high school graduation and mentoring program. Utilizing volunteers, we give students the skills and knowledge they need to graduate high school and create a plan post-high school that they can be proud of.
The Achievers program is implemented at Southside High and JL Mann Academy. We partner with teachers and school staff to implement our program - the school identifies students that are not on track to graduate high school, living in poverty, or need additional support. Volunteers work with the same small group of students implementing a brain-based curriculum to support students.
To support our students, we need support from the community. We need volunteers to work with our students. Volunteers receive training prior to volunteering and receive support from staff while they volunteer.
Our program is offered free of charge to schools and students - organizations like Michelin and the United Way of Greenville support our work. We rely on individual donors, too, that pledge to support us during our Annual Campaign. If you are interested in supporting us financially, you can donate to us here.
