My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Student Advocacy, Inc., Elmsford, NY, USA
I've helped mobilize several major communities in Westchester County to address chronic truancy. Student Advocacy has been a powerful voice for families, and it has consistently helped inform our collaborative discussions with fresh viewpoints that have helped us understand how schools can make internal adjustments (relating to safety, transportation, school choice, special education services offered, etc.) that can help remove barriers to consistent attendance by children who have been chronically truant. As a result our collaborative work has been more balanced and effective. Student Advocacy has been widely recognized as a unique and vital resource for families experiencing educational difficulties, that helps families and schools work together more effectively.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
helping schools and other institutions understand a broader range of reasons leading to chronic truancy, including where the problem is at least partly in the school (safety, transportation, educational services not offered, etc.)and not just in the home.
