Cambridge Park developed BE GREAT: Graduate to not only help youth who are at-risk for dropping out of school remain
engaged in school and learning, but to also enhance the culture throughout the
Club. Staff reinforce messages to members about the importance of education and
their ability to be successful in a school environment.
This program helps drive positive
outcomes for youth in academic success by allowing Clubs to identify youth who
show warning signs of withdrawal from school, and pairing them with adult mentors.
The goal is to build members’ confidence that they can indeed succeed
academically. Mentors consistently monitor warning signs of withdrawal from
school and work to develop timely interventions that focus on addressing
obstacles and celebrating successes. Mentors are also a vital part of Club,
home and school collaborations, in which each party works together to support
the youth’s success in school.
If you’re interested in being a
mentor please contact Jay Maia at e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org phone: (860)
