Positive Youth Development

We’re increasing Berkshire graduation rates.

Based on data surveys and research, we know that alcohol and drug use, along with teen pregnancy, increases the likelihood failing to complete high school dropout – derailing future career or college plans. Your support allows us to promote healthier decisions with investments in after-school, college and career work-readiness, and mentoring programs. When youth succeed, our whole community rises.
