Preparing for YSSS

How do I register for YSSS?

You will be receiving an email from the YSSS staff with a link to register for the program. Registrations will be due Wednesday, March 25th by 11:59pm (Eastern Standard Time). Site preference will be given to the scholars that return their registration forms by the deadline.  Those scholars that miss the deadline will have to pick from the remaining sites after everyone else has been placed. If you are interested in getting a head start on your registration, you can begin completing some of the materials here

Please review and complete each item on the Pre-travel Checklist prior to the program.

What Should I Pack?

Comfortable, casual clothing is appropriate for most sites and other activities. Please remember that you will be working with university professionals – we encourage you to dress in a manner that is respectful to your mentors and your peers. Please keep in mind the potential for variable weather and for varied temperatures within buildings (i.e., it might be hot outside but cold in an air-conditioned building). Please consider our suggested packing list for recommended items.


    How can I get to the YSSS program?

    Travel is arranged by JKCF. If you are planning on driving to the program or your parents are hoping to visit during the program please see the driving instructions to Wilson Hall, the residence hall where scholars will be staying.
