Target Group

African American high school 9th, 10th and 11th grade students with a 3.0 GPA or higher


YGB utilizes African American history and culture in such a way that motivates and empowers attendees to take control of their future. The purpose of this conference is to promote positive self-esteem, social consciousness, and cultural awareness, while simultaneously emphasizing the importance of higher education. We hope that the workshops and interactions with current African American UW students, staff, and faculty and the community will provide both the resources and role models to help students make a commitment to pursue higher education. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the UW and discover all the possibilities awaiting.



Additional Information

YGB is FREE! Food will be provided throughout the day. The only cost to you will be transportation to the University of Washington-Seattle campus. Legal guardians may also be present for our Parent Program which will hold essential information sessions in the morning.
