Welcome to YES 2020 Convenings!

On Wednesdays throughout SummerBridge, YES 2020 is holding convenings for educators, admin, content partners, and other stakeholders involved in making this summer’s programming a success for the young people of New York City.



  • Weds 10-11AM: geared towards ALL professionals

Convening Recaps

Convening Goals

At our convenings, SYEP providers and Content Partners:

  • connect with one another to make meaningful PBL and workplace challenges happen
  • share knowledge and resources
  • troubleshoot challenges
  • celebrate successes

…with the ultimate goal of supporting youth to equitably reach the five core aspirations of SummerBridge: (1) Connections to professionals, (2) Career exploration, (3) Authentic work experiences, (4) Socio-emotional learning supports, and (5) Skills-building.

BRING your challenges and questions to these meetings!! Meetings will include some structured/facilitated time to address a core issue (through a presentation, group problem-solving activity etc), and then some open breakout time to focus on the issues that participants most care about that week.
