During the Trenton Public Schools’ spring break, YSI offers very limited office hours. Some YSI staff and volunteers chaperone the spring college tour from April 2-6. This year’s tour includes universities in Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia. The universities are a mix of Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs), rural style campuses and those with strong athletic programs.
College tours are an important step in the college preparatory process for young people. Attendees have the opportunity to experience the college setting and are better able to select a college that best suits their learning styles and career goals.
YSI staff members thank our volunteers, donors, funders, parents of attendees and the community for their support which helps us to provide another youth development milestone, the college tour experience.
