On May 24, seven Mariner High School seniors who participate in the YMCA’s My Achievers Program (MAP) received college scholarships from the YMCA.

MAP works with first-generation youth and youth of color to set and achieve academic and career goals, and provides tours of colleges, guest speakers, and exposure to different careers. All recipients have participated in MAP for at least one year at Mariner, and are guided by YMCA’s Director of Youth Outreach, Ricardo Heredia.
