Since 2006 YDIP has committed to taking on the challenge of impacting and changing the lives of inner-city youth from the surrounding neighborhoods of Northeastern University. YDIP aims to get the youth prepared for not only college access but college success and completion. We achieve this by providing classroom instruction, after school and Saturday tutoring sessions, mentoring and support services, and building a sustainable working relationship with a point person from the student’s school and their parent, and through this collaboration, YDIP creates strategies to promote academic achievement.
