Services may include tutoring, mentoring, credit recovery, tracking of attendance and grades, leadership development, work experience opportunities, and others. The purpose of the In-School Program is to assist youth ages 14-21 currently enrolled in High School to graduate and pursue employment or post-secondary education.

Out of School Youth Services

The Out-of-School Youth services are designed for adolescence ages 16-24 that did not complete their High School education and obtain a High School diploma.

Services may include mentoring, tracking of attendance and grades, work experience opportunities, GED assistance, supportive services for transportation and childcare, tuition and fees, job placement assistance and others. By providing these wrap around services, out–of –school youth will have the skills that will enable them to find and keep a job.
