Circumstances and barriers for students vary widely across communities. Our local approach allows us to identify the unique needs in our community and leverage resources to make a difference in the lives of our young people.
Across our community, the identified local needs and risk factors vary for each school, family, and individual student. To address these needs, our school-based site coordinators have implemented the following supports:
Tier 1: School-Wide Services
Resources available to all students that focus on providing a positive school climate.
Tier 2: Targeted Programs
Student-centric and student-driven small group support, empowering students to break through personal challenges.
Tier 3: Individualized Support
Individual 1-on-1 support focused on students who have historically been the furthest from educational justice.
Providing basics like food and clothing enables young people to come to school comfortable, nourished and better prepared to learn.
Negative behavior undermines learning. We help kids learn to modify behavior and make positive choices.
College & Career Prep
We assist young people in identifying their vision for the future so they have a clear goal and motivation to overcome difficult circumstances.
By giving back in their neighborhoods, youth feel a sense of belonging, accomplishment, and value.
Through before and after school activities, we expand young people’s understanding of what the world has to offer.
We help children have a supportive home life by helping parents access the services they need.
Through one-to-one mentoring and group coaching, we instill in students the confidence to succeed, the belief that education creates opportunity, and set the expectation for success.
Physical & Mental Health
For kids to be the best learners, they need healthy bodies and minds. We connect them to physical, dental, vision, and mental health services regardless of ability to pay.
Our Services in Schools
School-based site coordinators empower students to stay in school through individualized access to needed resources, and ongoing encouragement and guidance to build confidence to reach their potential and achieve their dreams.
