Ready, Set, Go Blue!

Ready, Set, Go Blue!, a partnership between Ypsilanti Community Schools (YCS) and CEO, delivers a series of engaging and informative workshops to 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classes at Erickson Elementary School. Student leaders encourage a college-going culture among students by teaching students:

  • study skills
  • personal and academic goal setting
  • the importance of a college education
  • the opportunities a college education provides
  • college terminology
  • the connections between their elementary curriculum and college readiness

Participants also receive a college readiness workbook to complete with their families and information on summer programs for older family members. The year culminates with a visit to the U-M–Ann Arbor campus, which includes a tour of buildings, museums, libraries, labs, and the opportunity to meet U-M faculty members.
