Say Yes Syracuse

Say Yes supports students (and their families) on the path to high school graduation — with a goal of their being prepared for a post-secondary education, and able to afford its expense.

Say Yes Syracuse to Make Exception for the Class of 2021

Due to the unique nature of the 2020-2021 academic school year, Say Yes Syracuse will be making an exception for the graduating class of 2021.

Say Yes Student Spotlight Martine Dosa

"Be your own best advocate. This program is a strong pillar for education in our community, and something that everyone should take advantage of."

Say Yes Story - Kae'chauna Sinclair

"Pursue your interest and your dreams; the stars are not the limit, the sky is not the limit… you set your own limit."

Natalia's Say Yes Story

"When challenges arise, and when people tell you to give up or try something else: if you want to follow your dreams, you'll always find a way."

Say Yes Student Spotlight | Hunter Kusak

"Say Yes is one of the best programs I have been introduced too. Without Say Yes I would not have gone to, or been able to attend college."
