We Want You Back
As a member of the Youth Coordinating Board, I am excited about a new joint effort the YCB is embarking on this fall with Minneapolis Public Schools called We Want You Back. The goal is to enroll youth who have dropped out of school and get them on the path to graduation. The program’s goal is to attract back 200 youth and put them on a path where they can be successful.
Up to 1,900 young people dropped out of school between 2008 and 2010. The campaign is looking for volunteers to help reach young people who did not finish school this summer at various events and on Saturday, September 11 to join hundreds of people walking together, dropping information fliers, and talking to neighbors around the city. If you can, please help.
