YPC choristers enjoy comprehensive choral and performance programming that allows them to achieve musical excellence on stage. But in addition to music education, YPC also provides the tools necessary for each child to succeed in life beyond the chorus. Educational programming at YPC is designed to help its choristers get ahead academically, apply to college, network with professionals, and much more – inspiring children to think about their future, and realize their full potential.
YPC’s College Bound program invests in the academic success of all our graduates by providing our choristers with guidance and support for college admissions. College Bound offers a range of academic services, SAT/ACT prep, workshops, mentoring and other activities – all free of charge. As a result, 100% of YPC choristers attend college.
WIT: WOMEN INSPIRING TOMORROW
WIT was created to empower YPC’s female choristers and alumnae by encouraging mentoring relationships with accomplished women from a wide variety of professions. An array of WIT programming – such as one-on-one mentoring, networking opportunities, seminars and the annual WIT Conference – ensures that YPC choristers and alumnae, who are already on track to attend college, also have the information and resources to thrive in their careers and in professional relationships in the future.
From the first day a chorister joins the chorus, YPC works to develop the whole child by combining their musical education with the development of social and life skills – from fostering friendships with others from different backgrounds and nationalities, to workshops on time management and financial literacy.
