For salary support for a Program Associate position for their College All-Stars program at their new Bedford-Stuyvesant Office. This office is home to UD Team, their new charter school for students ages 15-17 who are significantly off track for graduating from high school and/or at risk for dropping out of school. Their early intervention prevents them from continually being “left back” and repeating a year in a school setting which did not suit them. All UD Team students will participate in the out-of-school-time College All-Stars program, specifically designed to engage young people during a time when they are most at-risk for delinquency; address the challenges they are facing; and provide them with the skills they need to overcome obstacles, graduate from high school and go on to attend college.
