ABOUT THE TOUR
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.
