Dynamy Youth Academy

Leadership & College Success

The Youth Academy is a five-year leadership and college success program for promising Worcester high school students who will most benefit from early intervention. Our goal is to ensure that their life circumstances do not prevent them from reaching their full academic and career potential. Students are recruited in eighth grade and begin the program the summer before high school begins. They are supported through a mentoring-based experiential educational curriculum for all four years of high school and into their first year in post-secondary education.

Students are taught to find and use their own strengths, confidence, passions, values, and leadership qualities

The Youth Academy includes:
Individual advising/mentoring
Adventure challenge trips
Academic enrichment and tutoring
Class and community meetings
Volunteer community service
Parent involvement
A comprehensive college readiness and application curriculum


Students apply in eighth grade and must meet the following criteria: live in Worcester, Massachusetts and attend public school here; meet maximum family income guidelines; exhibit the academic potential to succeed in college; and be the first generation of their family to attend college.
