April 9 - 14, 2017

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential.


In 2012 the YMCA College Tour program was developed to help students in the 8-11th grade to learn more about attending college and what steps need to be taken for college acceptance. Over the past 5 years the program has expanded to serving 350 students overall. The program involves students touring over 8 college or university campuses of different sizes, academic focuses and campus life.


- Coppin State University
- Georgetown University
- George Washington University
- Howard University
- Johns Hopkins University
- University of the District of Columbia

Tour Goals:
The goals of the program are to motivate students to pursue post-secondary education, assist them with planning and decision making related to their educational future and introduce students to various types of college campuses to expand their knowledge of college admissions procedures.

Students Will:
50 students grades 8-11th will explore seven campuses throughout Washington, DC and Baltimore Maryland. Our trip will also feature visits to various cultural and historical sites.
