Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: Transportation and food for Back on Track students

Back on Track helps high school students in Anchorage, AK literally get "back on track" to graduation by addressing the challenges that are holding them back and by providing a learning environment in which they are supported to succeed. Students who have fallen significantly behind are referred by high schools across the Anchorage School District. The basic criteria for referral to be enrolled is to be failing at least one class and being economically disadvantaged. Many are often shouldering adult responsibilities and working and are in need of non-academic supports to address barriers holding them back from learning and attending school regularly. Through an evening classroom that provides flexibility for students who need to work and a daytime classroom (both located at Covenant House Alaska), along with a summer school program, students are able to get one-on-one instruction to earn the credits they need to graduate. Project funds will provide food in the form of a hot meal and classroom snacks along with transportation for students who have complicated schedules and for whom the public transportation system is not timely or sufficient for their schedule or location. In its first three years Back on Track has supported 658 high school students and helped 153 seniors graduate. In addition to providing funding, Club members will have an opportunity to volunteer at Covenant House.
