EVOLUTIONS is a FREE after school program for New Haven and West Haven public high school students that takes place at the Peabody Museum of Natural History on Yale’s campus. The recruitment and application process is in full swing right now, all freshmen and sophomores are eligible to apply, and students who remain in good standing usually continue in the program throughout high school!
If accepted, you will be assigned to a class that takes place one day per week from 3:30-5:30 (but you can go over anytime after 2:00). During class you will do science trivia, SAT practice, learn about college and careers, and do hands on activities and museum exhibit projects. They also have free tutoring services, SAT practice and college essay writing workshops, monthly events where you play games, eat pizza, and network with college students, and an annual 3-day out-of-state college trip.
After one year in EVO, you can apply to work in the Sci.CORPS Youth Employment Program, where after 75 hours of community service, you can earn a paid position as a Museum Interpreter. After two years, you can apply to do a paid summer lab internship with a Yale professor. Some of their graduates even work with the program during college.
