“The YES Prep Girls’ Leadership Development Project is designed to support some of our highest-risk students in remaining in school and, ultimately, on the path to college. Recent YES Prep Public Schools discipline data and student survey questions demonstrate a need for improved proactive supports for our female students. At several YES Prep campuses, there are higher incidents of relational aggression and higher withdrawal rates among female students. The Girls’ Leadership Development Project will support the social and emotional learning of a cohort of female students with the ultimate goal of enhancing academic success.”
