I first became aware of UCAP years ago. Their mission is to help kids that are in danger of flunking out of school. These children for many different reasons had been held back for one or two grades and thus were highly likely to drop out. At UCAP these kids can make up the lost ground and graduate from high school with their peers. They have an 75% chance of graduating from high school which is far higher than their peers who have not gone to UCAP. This mission appealed to me because the children were being given a second chance just like I had been given a second chance by a kindly man who accepted me into his school when I had been asked to leave my prior school. Everyone deserves a second chance!
