Teaching Positions, Yleana Leadership Academy

The Yleana Leadership Academy is a residential summer academy which serves rising high school seniors in urban areas (Baltimore, Boston, North Shore of MA, NYC, and Philadelphia) and seeks to close the achievement gap through a three-week transformative intervention summer SAT experience.  We are part summer camp (on Colgate University’s campus in upstate NY), part intense SAT training using the Socratic method and grounded in asking the questions that help to cultivate higher order thinking skills, and part leadership academy:  We explore issues like race, class, power, income inequality, prisons, etc through our Issues curriculum, an open-forum discussion setting where we question these issues through readings by people like James Baldwin, Junot Diaz, bell hooks, Michelle Alexander, WEB DuBois, and Sherman Alexie.  We also help our students acquire and hone the soft skills they will need in the college process/during college, as well as develop higher order/critical thinking skills through our Entrepreneurship class, which culminates in a one-day startup fair with real live entrepreneurs from London, Istanbul, Philadelphia, NYC, and more! advising the students all day until their crowning faceoff – a Shark Tank competition.   Students (all of whom are low-SES, almost all of whom are of color, most of whom are first-generation) attend on full scholarship and, besides studying for the SAT, being part of Issues and taking Entrepreneurship classes, enjoy a traditional summer camp experience (complete with Friday night campfires and making S’mores!) while becoming a part of a welcoming and introspective camp community.  One of the greatest compliments we have received came from a student who had been in foster care and had had significant trouble at home who told us that Yleana was the first place she felt safe, like people really cared about her.  We strive to create and promote that atmosphere – a loving, caring, safe place for kids who haven’t always had it easy.
