YPP Theory of Change

YPP Identifies and Trains High School and College students
as “Math Literacy Workers” (MLW's)

Math Literacy Workers teach math to elementary students
at afterschool programs and summer camps

In doing so Math Literacy Workers...

  1. Improve academic outcomes for elementary school students.
  2. Determine and pursue a path to success, which
    includes a college education.
  3. Act to remove institutional and systemic barriers to
    their own individual success and the collective success
    of their peers.

Our Story
