-- Maxine, YPIE Graduation Coach
“YPIE College Essay Coaches are able to use their life experience to open the eyes and minds of students, guide them and encourage them to find paths to express all they have to offer, which leads them to aspire without fear.”

YPIE Essay Coach
Our YPIE students have tremendous stories to share!
YPIE Essay Coaches provide support to our Scholars as they write their college essays, a critical part of the college application process. Guide our YPIE students as they craft their college essays from the spring of 11th grade through the fall of 12th grade.
Note: All coach meetings are currently taking place online.
