Young Professionals In Training

The program will expose students from underrepresented populations to majors and careers on Auburn University's campus. YPIT is a collaboration between Auburn University Outreach, Truman Pierce Institute (TPI), and the Curtis House, a local non-profit. YPIT seeks to understand participants' challenges and needs by allowing them to be the drivers of the program. The ultimate goal of the program is to empower the participants and offer a pathway to Auburn University.

We are looking for students in grades 5–12 who are interested in attending college and would like to be mentored.
