Achieving a 90 percent Graduation Rate: A Path Back to High School for Boston Youth
The GradNation campaign invites you to join a webinar on December 13th, 2018 from 3:00 – 4:15 p.m. ET that dives deeply into the Youth Re-engagement area.
Six percent of the class of 2016 did not graduate from high school and was not enrolled in a program to graduate. Though these young people have the potential to graduate, they have not completed school and lack a clear pathway to finish. Re-engagement centers have emerged as a successful way to locate youth aged 16 to 24 who have left the traditional school system and connect them to effective educational options and other services, so they can attain a high school diploma or GED.
In this webinar, we will hear from the National League of Cities on the re-engagement landscape and learn from The Boston Re-Engagement Center and their success in bringing young people back to earn their diplomas. We will define re-engagement and its importance, discuss barriers youth face in returning to education, and describe the strategies to re-engage students. We will also hear from young people served by the Boston Re-Engagement Center.
