Say Yes Little Scholars Program


Welcome to the Say Yes Little Scholars Program!

Say Yes Little Scholars is a 3-year-old Pre-K pilot being launched in partnership with Buffalo Public Schools. The goal of the Say Yes Little Scholars is to strengthen the path to success for our community’s youngest learners by ensuring they are healthy and academically on track to thrive in school and beyond. This is accomplished by creating equitable opportunities and supports in partnership with families and community stakeholders.
