Start working towards your goals!
Here is how to get started:

Yoop! has orientations on the second and fourth Monday of every month. At orientation we go into depth about the program and the application process, and we answer any questions about the program. During the orientation session, you will receive a checklist of the documents that are required for enrollment in Yoop!, and you will provide those documents later at your initial eligibility interview.

Signups for orientation are on a first-come first-serve basis, so call to reserve a seat at orientation now!

If you have a disability that might impact your ability to overcome barriers to participate, don’t let that stop you! Staff are always happy to assist. Our facilities are ADA compliant. Yoop! has experience with special education, can provide translation assistance, help you obtain psychological services, and help in other ways.

Eligibility Interview & Application

At the eligibility interview appointment, the application for the program will be completed with a Yoop! staff member as well as a discussion of what your goals and plans are for coming to Yoop!. You will be required to provide documents establishing eligibility to work in the United States and income eligibility for the program at that time. Even though you will need documentation, Yoop! staff are happy to help you overcome these barriers. A prospective participant cannot be evaluated for entry into the program until the application process has been completed.
