Overview

The Michigan Young People's Project (YPP) program began in 2007 after five University of Michigan students attended the YPP Summer College Math Literacy Worker (CMLW) Training in Chicago, with support from the University of Michigan's (UM) College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) and School of Education. The respective Dean’s of each of the colleges had met Dr. Bob Moses of the Algebra Project at an event before the training, and felt inspired to support the 5 students.  Throughout the remainder of the summer and the fall of 2007, the five worked with advisers and colleagues in the LSA, Education, the Residential College, and Project Community to model YPP for the Mathematics Literacy Project and began solidifying community connections.

Since its founding in 2007, YPP Michigan has engaged over 200 high school students and 1000 elementary school students.
