The Young People’s Project builds communities that count through math literacy and social change. YPP changes the way young people view themselves in their classrooms and communities. Through our unique model of near-peer learning, we position ourselves to train high school students as Math Literacy Workers (MLWs), who improve academic outcomes for themselves and the elementary and middle school students they work with. These MLWs actively work to remove institutional and systemic barriers to their own individual success and the collective success of their peers. This work has been ongoing for the past 25 years and it is our hope it will continue to benefit the communities YPP serves for the next 25!
YPP is commemorating 25 years by hosting a gala to celebrate our past and value our future! Please join us this Fall.
