Community-Wide Systems that Promote High School Completion
Tsoi-A-Fatt, Rhonda; Harris, Linda
Prevention Researcher, v16 n3 p13-16 2009
Youth develop across multiple domains that are relevant to academic success. While schools focus primarily on cognitive development, many of the supports young people receive in other developmental areas come from community-based out-of-school programming. Stimulation of development in these additional key areas builds skills that support connections to school and achievement. This article explores the need for a community-wide approach to support dropout prevention for struggling youth and re-engagement of disconnected youth.
