**The Yale Athletic Department will not be hosting NYSP for the summer of 2013**
All NYSP programs operate at no cost to the participants. In addition, NYSP programs allow institutions and their personnel to take an active role in community life and bettering of the community. The goal of the NYSP at Yale is to create a program that will benefit the participants in the community for many years to come. The NYSP aims to expose campers to the many resources on Yale's campus.
In 1968, representatives of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports piloted the NYSP concept during the summer at two university athletics facilities.
On March 17, 1969, the White House announced that the federal government was committing $3 million to establish a sports program for economically disadvantaged youth. The federal grant has significantly increased to $15 million since then, and strong congressional support remains for NYSP objectives.
NYSP is a partnership between the federal government,
represented by the US Department of Health and Human Services
(DHHS) and the nation's colleges and universities, acting through
the NCAA. Local support from within the communities of NYSP also
helps make the program prosper.
