Our G.O.A.L. Program supports at-risk students with a case manager who focuses on specific needs. Homeless students with no support system usually drop out of high school and stay trapped in the cycle of homelessness. Outreach developed a program to help homeless students graduate, get a job and change their life. We provide resources like advocacy, transportation to school, school lunches, textbooks, tutoring, a GED satellite classroom, even caps and gowns — everything necessary for students to earn their diploma.
We also train youth how to get a job and keep it. That includes helping then help them find job openings and get transportation to interviews. We also assist in finding housing and helping youth with life-skills including budgeting and healthy living. As a result of G.O.A.L., over half of those graduating go on to post-secondary education including college, vocational school and military service.
