Mission: To surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school & achieve in life.
Programs: Individualized student support - through site coordination, the organization places a site coordinator at selected k-12 schools to work with students who are most vulnerable for dropping out: young people affected by gangs, violence, family disruption, and poverty. Students receive support to raise academic achievement, reduce truancy, and address barriers to learning. Personalized support to students and their families helps them to overcome social and emotional obstacles that stand in the way of students fully engaging in school. They also provide school-wide activities that bring together the whole school, resources for students, and/or the students into the community.
prevention programs and other services - throughout the year the organization coordinates and brokers services for several seattle schools. The organization provides thousands of students with backpacks and schools supplies annually. Gently used books, holiday food baskets, connections to clothing, and personal hygiene items are given to students and families who can least afford these items. The organization also connects other community services and programs to schools, based on school needs.
