Postsecondary and Career Supports

Say Yes Buffalo offers a host of support services to students after they graduate high school and enter their postsecondary careers. Please see below for a list of such services.

Buffalo College Success Network: With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Say Yes Buffalo and partners Buffalo Public Schools, Buffalo State College, SUNY Erie, Villa Maria College, Medaille College and the University at Buffalo has launched new initiatives to help Buffalo students make successful transitions from high school to college and ultimately complete a postsecondary certificate or degree.

College Summer Programs: If you are a current high school senior that will graduate in spring 2020 and you plan to attend either SUNY Erie (ECC) or Buffalo State College you may be eligible to participate in one of our Say Yes Summer Success Academies.

Internship and Career Pathways Program: Say Yes Buffalo, the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, area businesses and organizations and local colleges and universities have partnered to create a paid internship program specifically for Say Yes Buffalo Scholars. Thanks to a generous grant from Citi Foundation we are expanding the program to include more opportunities and programming for Say Yes Scholars.
