Thank you to our very generous supporters and partners who help YPIE to make a life-changing impact on thousands of students across Yonkers.
These are just a few of the many partners whose support makes our work possible.
Our Partnership with Yonkers Public Schools
We greatly appreciate our strong partnership with the Yonkers Public Schools, which includes:
Student Collaboration: YPIE works closely with partners in the schools - principals, assistant principals, guidance counselors, and teachers - to ensure that we are coordinating services for each student.
School-Based College Centers: Each high school in Yonkers has a YPIE College Center to reach students where they spend most of the day. We work closely with school partners to coordinate support services for our students.
Data Sharing Agreement: YPIE and YPS have a unique data sharing agreement that enables YPIE to track students on a broad range of metrics, including class grades, GPAs, Regents scores, College Zone attendance, and college access and persistence checkpoints (applications, SAT, etc). YPIE has developed a robust, custom system that maintains student privacy, which is populated by school district data and YPIE staff input. This data sharing ensures that YPIE can monitor student outcomes and target support.
In addition to the Yonkers Public Schools, we are also very grateful to the many partners with whom we work closely to support our YPIE students, including:
