Become a Partner School


We believe our curriculum and program is the most effective and impactful when we work with students multiple times over multiple years. Structured partnership agreements enable us to provide quality progressive programming, and establish strong relationships with students and schools.

To become a program partner we ask schools to commit to 3 or more program days for their students throughout the school year.  Repeat programming can be structured to serve the same group of students multiple times or to serve multiple grade levels annually.

Based on your needs and interests we will work together with you to determine a course progression and custom partnership agreement for your school. Overnight programming is also available to YEP partners upon request! Please contact the School & Groups Program Manager for more information on camping, overnight, or other custom programming.


Advantages of partnering with YEP

  • Secure your first choice dates and classes
  • Secure fixed pricing
  • Eligibility for grant funding
  • Eligibly for custom curriculum
  • Progressive curriculum tailored to your students

“Students walked away from the CMC programming with positive attitudes.  They talked about the activities far after they had ended and I saw pride and belief in themselves as they explained some of the things they accomplished…This resonated with their role in the classroom, connecting it to their responsibility to be a community member, not just an individual. “

-Kerry Andrews, Schmitt Elementary program partner
