Schools And Communities: Together For Tomorrow
Last updated on January 9, 2014

Logo

The mission of School and Communities: Together for Tomorrow is to increase high-school graduation rates by engaging, recruiting, and training volunteers to act as role models who exhibit positive behavior and encourage academic and personal development in students.

Description:
The objectives of our program can be placed in two categories:

SCHOOL PERFORMANCE

  • Increase Attendance: We aim to reinforce the importance of family cooperation and support to reduce chronic tardiness and absenteeism and increase student engagement.

  • Improve Behavior: We aim to reinforce positive student behaviors and habits through encouragement and accountability.

  • Improve Course Performance: We aim to increase access to services and activities which reinforces school concepts in student learning and achievement.

  • Increase College Access: We aim to educate students about financial assistance, career and post-secondary education options.



PARTNERSHIPS

  • Gain support from faith-based, corporate and community-based organizations around the school.

  • Dedicate services to school by providing volunteers to give academic support before, during and after school.

  • Aid in providing access to in-kind resources to mitigate the external factors that hinder student performance and access to post-secondary education.
