Attendance: School-Based Support

Student Advocates mentor youth in order to improve their attendance and academic performance. Through individualized case management, they prepare students for post-secondary education and career success.

Activities include:

  • Access to after-school and summer programming
  • Monthly personal and educational development workshops
  • Career exploration, training, and job placement
  • Referrals to resources within their school and community
  • Access to post-secondary education and employment opportunities that may include resources regarding FAFSA, scholarships, and job referrals.

Talking Círculos

Trained facilitators meet weekly with youth in a group setting to build a positive value system. Meetings are based on the philosophy that youth need other men and women, their family, and their community to care for, assist, heal, guide, and successfully prepare them for adulthood.
