Education & Career

sample001

Boys and Girls Club partners with youth, parents, schools and other community stakeholders to implement the following approaches: academic enrichment and school engagement; targeted dropout prevention; and intensive intervention and case management. Our aim is to ensure that all Club members graduate from high school on time, ready for a post-secondary education and a 21st-century career.

BE GREAT: Graduate
This program is designed to enhance each Club member's engagement with learning by providing consistent support from caring and trusted adults in developing the academic, emotional and social skills needed to achieve academic success.

This program uses the early warning signals -- attendance, behavior and course failure -- to identify youth at risk of dropping out of school.
