Ya-A-Te means “Welcome” in Apache and is a four-day leadership retreat held off campus for freshmen and sophomore students. It teaches leadership skills and team work, all while demonstrating the resources students will need for a successful future at TJC.

You'll get the opportunity to experience the outdoors with canoeing, zip lining and enjoy the gorgeous East Texas Pines. You'll also partake in nightly activities and compete in tribal games for the bragging rights for the ultimate tribe, which are the Chiricahua, Kiowa, Lipan and Mescalero.
