The Graduation Success program provides middle and high school students in foster care with education planning, monitoring, coaching, and other supports to succeed in school. The program is built on two evidence-based practices: Check and Connect, an intensive student engagement model, and Person Centered Planning, a transition to adulthood model from special education. Education Specialists coach youth in self-determination, self-advocacy, and problem solving, giving them as much power in their own lives as possible. We support youth in setting and achieving personally meaningful goals. We monitor attendance, behavior and course performance daily and perform individualized, timely interventions to keep youth on track. We build and support a team of adults around each youth, including caregiver, social worker, and school staff. We meet basic material needs (clothes, books, school supplies) through our free store and pay for things that help youth explore their passions and fully engage in their school or community, like extracurricular activities, school events, and items like yearbooks or cap and gown. Finally, we advocate for youth and help remove and resolve education barriers in school enrollment and transitions, special education needs, disciplinary actions, and credit retrieval.
