Education Advocate Program

The Center for Prevention Programs provides Education Advocates who focus on student academic, social/emotional, and physical health in order to overcome barriers which prevent student success in school. Advocates serve students re-entering their community and school settings from the judicial system as well as students who have been identified by schools as potential dropouts. Education Advocates engage in a range of activities, moving from simply linking youth to needed services to a more intensive involvement such as advocating, consulting, skill building/education, counseling support and problem solving.

Program goals:

  • Increase the number of students who graduate high school, or receive a high school diploma equivalent.

  • Increase college and career readiness.
