Our schools may be closed, but Comprehensive Youth Development work goes on. Our staff and students are in daily touch via phone and video. We’ve provided immediate, emergency help for students and families from food to medical care to housing. And, we continue our ongoing work to help students stay on track to graduate, and prepare for life after high school. Students are accepting college offers, filling out financial aid forms, and enrolling in online training courses to be ready when jobs begin to reopen.
