Welcome to YPT ACE - Accessing Choices in Education, a program for all Native American students attending Yerington Intermediate or Yerington High School in the 5th to 12th grade, administered by the YPT Education Department.

We are searching for providers of services that would be beneficial to our students’ education. This broadness of definition allows us to offer a variety of services and we hope that each student looks through our selections and finds several enriching opportunities that will interest them.

We are always interested in culturally significant offerings, such as powwow dance instruction, crafting of ceremony related objects, drumming and singing, and uses of plants as food and medicine. We need scholastic tutors in various subjects, for different age levels. We believe in athletics as a pathway to college and need experienced coaches that can raise our teens up to college recruitment level.

ACE providers have unique flexibility in the working world. As a provider, you will be contracted with YPT to offer your assistance to the students, teaching subjects within your area of expertise. You decide the value of your work and set your own working schedule. ACE is about choices for the students as well as their service providers.
