Cohorts

Youth programs will be assigned to cohorts which will proceed in different phases of the YPAI. All youth programs from a school, college, or unit will be assigned to the same cohort with the idea being that programs within the same college may have shared procedures, manuals, etc. that can be leveraged as a group. Each cohort is made up of youth programs from their own unit and several other schools, colleges, or units.

Example Cohort Progression in Phases

Table of Cohorts corresponding to each phase: Phase 1 through 4

Each cohort’s unique progression is in the accordion below.
