For continued support of BE GREAT: Graduate, an initiative that complements their Juniors Academy and fosters a culture of learning for youth in grades 4-8. Targeting youth showing early warning signs of dropping out of school such as attendance, behavior, and academic grades, BE GREAT: Graduate aims to promote student engagement, reduce dropout rates, and increase school completion. By providing consistent support from caring and trusted adults, they help these youth to develop the academic, emotional, and social skills necessary to achieve success in school. This long-term strategy combines additional academic support, one-on-one mentoring, close monitoring, and timely intervention to struggling learners through the eighth grade.
