New Web Feature: Hillside Program Rated in Top 23 for Preparing Youth for the Future

Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection addresses education gaps facing at-risk youth

As an eighth-grade student, Jason already was at risk of dropping out of school. His attendance record was poor and his grade point average had fallen to a D-level. 

That was until he enrolled in Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection (HW-SC), an affiliate program of Alliance for Children and Families member Hillside Family of Agencies, Rochester, N.Y.

Jason was assigned one of HW-SC’s full-time, professional youth advocates, who offered support and helped him overcome obstacles at home and school. Jason’s grades improved to a B-average.

In high school, Jason participated in HW-SC’s Youth Employment Training Academy and secured a part-time job as a cashier at one of HW-SC’s employer partners, and he graduated early. Thanks to a scholarship provided by HW-SC’s local college partner, today he is proud to be the first member of his family to attend college.

HW-SC is one of the top 23 programs in the nation that successfully support youth in preparing for college or employment after high school. It’s a distinction HW-SC earned in 2009 from the American Youth Policy Forum, which examined programs that close the education gaps facing at-risk youth.
