The IYT College Academy is a program of IYT that serves young men of color at traditional middle and high schools. Students can enter the program anytime from 7th to 11th grade and continue with IYT through college graduation. The program serves 1500 students in nineteen middle and high schools in Sacramento County.


What services are students provided with?

IYT students are provided with the following wrap-around support services from 7th through 12th grade including: student development, weekly tutoring, internships, college tours, parent engagement and mentorship

What are the intended outcomes?

The primary outcomes include: decreasing suspension rates, decreasing chronic absenteeism, increasing college readiness (A-G completion), increasing high school graduation and increasing college attendance rates.


How does the program work on our campuses?

IYT operates both during the school day and after school. We have a physical space at each campus where the program is housed. As a member of IYT, students are required to attend weekly study halls, workshops and mentorship sessions.  The goal of each IYT program site employee is not to supplant but enhance the work of counselors, teachers and administrators.
