Once enrolled in the YOTO program, you are eligible to receive a monthly stipend based on your grades and school attendance. In order to receive your stipend each month, you must complete a Stipend Request Form and submit it to your School Liaison.
Your monthly stipend amount will be determined by your passing grades, attendance record, and whether you are in middle school, high school, or in foster care/a group home. See below for a breakdown.
Stipend Request Forms are due the second Tuesday of every month. Stipends forms turned from Wednesday to Friday of the stipend due date week will not be processed until the following month. Any stipend forms turned in after the 15th of the month will not be considered. If you have any questions, please refer to your School Liaison for upcoming due dates and deadlines.
If you fail to turn in your stipend form for 2 consecutive months, you will be dis-enrolled from the YOTO program. If you are suspended or have altered your grades/Stipend Request Form in any way, you will be disqualified from receiving a stipend that month.
If you turn in your stipend form but are not earning a 2.0 GPA average, you will be placed on an Academic Improvement Plan. You will be required to meet with a YOTO Program Coordinator to set your own goals that should be attainable in one month’s time.
If you have questions regarding your stipend or academic performance, please contact your School Liaison or the YOTO office at (520) 293-1136.
