Applying to be part of YGC is a two-part process: the online application and, if selected, an in-person interview with the YGC Steering Committee. Those selected to participate in the program are expected to commit fully to the program for its duration, so prospective applicants should confirm their ability to attend each session and participate in every aspect of the program before applying. Participants who miss any part of a session will not be allowed to graduate from the program.
Please note there is a fee (i.e. tuition) to participate in the program. This fee helps cover the various costs associated with offering a program like YGC, and is set at $125 per participant. This fee is payable to For A Better Tomorrow, and must be paid in full by the conclusion of the program. Financial assistance may be available upon request.
Before proceeding to the application, please review the following items with your parent/guardian:• Program Summary• Participant Expectations• Program Requirements
These items should be reviewed in detail and discussed with your parent/guardian prior to submitting the signed parent/guardian’s commitment form. If you will be unable to attend the program in its entirety, please consider applying to YGC next year.
Applications will remain open until Saturday, March 31, 2018 and all applications must be completed online. If you need assistance, please send an email to For a Better Tomorrow. You will be contacted by April 7 if you have been selected to move on in the application process to the interview stage. Following the interviews, those selected to participate in the Class of 2018 will be notified of their acceptance into the program by May 1, 2018. Participants offered a spot in the Class of 2018 should confirm their participation after reviewing the Participant Agreement Form one last time.
In order to secure a spot in the class of 2018, participants must submit the initial fee of $50 by Tuesday, May 15, 2018, and all tuition must be paid by the conclusion of the program on Saturday, June 30, 2018.
If you have questions or need any further assistance, please email us.
Best regards,YGC Class of 2018 Steering Committee
