Student Feedback

Before YYGS, I was unable to speak throughout multiple discussions at my school. I was constantly afraid of saying the wrong thing and being ridiculed. But, the people at YYGS helped me realize I was surrounded by people who would not criticize me for saying the wrong things. And if I did say the wrong thing, they would help me correct my mistake and learn from it. This helped me improve and work on my speaking skills throughout the program.”

How can I learn about YYGS Residential from previous participants?

Each summer, YYGS works with a student media team to coordinate social media takeovers, peer interviews, and video documentaries. These students are provided creative support but not specifically instructed on what to say, offering genuine perspectives of their program experience. We recommend visiting our YouTube channel for these student perspectives.
