Welcome! The YMCA Achievers program is dedicated to helping all urban youth reach their fullest potential. Many of Boston's youth graduate high school and are left to navigate the college process by themselves. From College Path to the Summer Institute, we provide educational enrichment opportunities to prepare for college & career. We are proud to be part of the YMCA of Greater Boston, the largest provider of social services in MA.
Open to all high school Juniors, this affordable and innovative 8 week SAT prep program prepares teens for the May SAT Test.
The program includes, computer based tools and individual analysis, in classroom instruction, take home exercises, as well as college essay and resume building workshops. With help of staff, students measure their skills and concentrate on specific areas of test taking difficulty. Junior Pathways also has added the benefit of preparing students for the college application process through workshops on essays and resumes. Space is limited and the program will now be offered in multiple locations in the Greater Boston area.

Last year, thirteen of us are traveling around the city every day for two weeks in August, learning about photography, the history of Boston and some of the riches it has to offer. Check out our photos from last summer on shutterfly!
