We had Dr. Yates speak to a smaller group of Mentor/Mentees. He was great! Everyone was engaged and commented on how fantastic the session was.
As a first-generation college student and Jersey City native he continued in education to earn a double Master's degree (MBA/MIS) from St. Peter's University and a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership, Management, and Policy from Seton Hall University.
He has presented at Educational conferences, teaches college courses in Educational Leadership, Business, and Policy, and in the process of publishing his academic research. His most recent endeavor is to work with urban School Districts to create a curriculum to expose elementary and middle students to the college choice process and career exploration.
