EDUCATION  

The Key to Overcoming the Legacy of Illiteracy 

A sizeable number of young people have been stopped in their tracks. They risk being denied a fundamental right. 

Up to 75% of youths have left school without graduating. Every day on the street makes it harder to catch up again — only increasing the chance that they will plunge into chronic adult homelessness and life of destitute. 

Many of the youth in our education programs are forced to build a future while still spending each day wondering where they'll sleep that night. Many are in housing, but not ready for a traditional school environment. A disproportionate number have learning disabilities, often undiagnosed. Most had their education repeatedly disrupted before becoming homeless or depressed. 

Youth Care Projects’s education programs are designed to help such youths overcome the barriers. They combine flexible diploma and GED-track resources with intensive case management, drop-in, and housing services. Over the last five years, we have helped more than 100 students earn their high school diploma or GED,, and more than 100 young people have enrolled in higher educational programs.
