Assistance with job applications and placement.
Assistance for students ready to make up missed school credits. We help them enroll in credit recovery through their school, and offer support as they work toward their goal. (Any age)
Suspended Youth & In-school Support:
Youth who have been suspended from school, or youth in school who need additional support, can be referred to the School Success Program and receive one-on-one mentoring / tutoring from an educational specialist. (Any age)
