This week we had some special guests in our offices. For the third year, Project Learn is playing host to 4 upcoming high school seniors who are participation in the Summit Education Initiative’s Destination College. Destination College (DC) helps prepare upcoming seniors to transition from secondary school to college. Destination College members prepare to take their ACT, participate in leadership activities, and also conduct an action research project for an area organization. Our DC members have been conducting a survey with some Project Learn students to learn why many of them dropped and and to use this information to develop short web videos to encourage young adults who are considering dropping out of school to stay in school or for those that have already withdrawn, to sign up to attend Project Learn classes.
Our group is working hard and should have the videos produced by the end of next week. They’re doing a wonderful job so far. So…keep an eye out for their videos over the next year.
