For staff support for the Diplomas 2 Degrees program which will serve 50 Club members in grades 8 to 12. The project goals are to help teenagers achieve good grades, graduate from high school and enroll in a college or a trade school. There are two core components of the Diplomas 2 Degrees program: “Recipe for Success” workshops which will provide Club members and their parents/guardians guidance and support for the college search and application process; and small group sessions featuring activities related to college planning and preparation. Additionally, each member will be assigned an adult mentor and be linked to a peer mentor. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Newark, celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year, is dedicated to providing Newark’s kids with a safe place and the support they need to be successful in school and life.
