ABOUT US

PROJECT SERVICES

The Outside the Box Dropout Prevention develops, delivers and supports one-to-one tutoring and mentoring projects to school-aged children most at-risk of dropping out of school due to academic, social and economic barriers.

TARGET AUDIENCE

Montopolis, our targeted service area, is a community segregated by educational, occupational and economic inequality. Residents are confined to construction and service jobs and without a high school degree, lack the educational attainment to overcome challenges that significantly influence their child's occupational class, income prosperity and life prospects.
