EdP Summer Fellowships

Education & Youth Development

Spend your summer as a tutor-mentor with local youth!

Through the EdP Summer Fellowship, Stanford students work intensively on a team for one of two programs: East Palo Alto Stanford Academy (EPASA) and High School Support Initiative (HSSI) Summer Saturdays.

Education Partnerships (EdP) is a program of the Haas Center that addresses educational equity in our local communities by engaging Stanford Students and community youth in tutoring and mentoring relationships.
