SAYS Summer Program

The SAYS Scholar Academy aims to equip college bound students already active in the SAYS network with the tools, preparation, and knowledge necessary for them to begin envisioning their own educational journey after high school. The purpose of the academy is to cultivate Warrior Scholars capable of determining, defining, and creating their own path in higher education and breaking institutional barriers every step of the way.

This part of SAYS focuses on the 3 Cā€™s for Warrior Scholars: college, community, and consciousness. Students receive an intensive summer academy as well as quarterly, follow-up check-ins during the academic year. Students are expected to be ambassadors of SAYS leadership model of social justice youth development year-round!
