The YEP high school program provides students with access to after school activities designed to enrich their high school experience and improve their social and interpersonal skills, establish relationships with their teachers and peers, and improve their academic performance with programs like Credit Recovery, Bridge to College, and Driver’s  Education.  YEP also sponsors teacher-led activities such as the African American Student Union, Newspaper Club, Robotics Club, Polynesian Club, and Ballet Folklorico.  These sponsored activities are facilitated by teachers and/or school staff.
