School systems can be complex. Community Based Organizations can play a vital role in helping students and families understand school systems and know their rights and responsibilities.
Community Based Organizations work with school staff on building relationships with students and their families, as well as provide schools with specific information on how to work with your audience.
Community Based Organizations have a unique role in connecting youth with their community, government, and businesses. They can provide youth a safe place to explore their strength and find new opportunities.
When school systems have not worked for youth, Community Based Organizations can help reengage them. They provide career training and high school and or college credit. They are a vital safety net for youth.
Community Based Organizations can also be catalysts for change. They play an important role in advocating for student and family groups at school boards, community forums, and at the state and national level.
