We accomplish this goal through four strategies:
Our core strategy is to support and replicate the Gateway to College programs around the country. Through Gateway to College, students who have dropped out of high school or are significantly off track complete their high school diplomas at our college-based programs while simultaneously earning college credits toward a postsecondary credential.
We design and implement community-wide initiatives to ensure that disconnected youth are back on track, college and career ready.
We advocate for improved policies and funding for opportunity youth by leading and collaborating with local and national coalitions.
We inform our partners and the public about effective ways to serve our student population by conducting and disseminating original research on disconnected youth.
