Defying Statistics One Success at a Time

Every 26 seconds a student drops out of school.

LEAP focuses on system-involved youth and young adults ages 14 to 26 who are in foster care, involved in the criminal justice system, or are homeless. We’ve partnered with the Annie E. Casey Foundation and 11 other non-profits across the country to offer LEAP programming in Benton Harbor, Detroit, and Flint. Students participating in the program enjoy the benefits of our dropout recovery services.

It is truly an all-hands-on deck effort, and the Annie E. Casey Foundation is so grateful for partners like Jobs for Michigan's Graduates who are working alongside us in Benton Harbor, Flint and Detroit to identify and adapt effective strategies to build brighter futures for
these young people.
