Hillside Work Scholarship Connection uses $490,000 in funding from the New York State Department of Education to provide services to at-risk students in the Rochester City School District in our model program whose overachieving goal is student graduation. Our program also measures intermediate goals including:

  1. Improve academic performance, as evidenced by increased promotion, sufficient credits earned and/or timely graduation
  2. Improve attendance rates
  3. Decrease the rate of disciplinary referrals, as evidenced by a decrease in suspensions
  4. Increase the number of trained, job-ready students, as evidenced by active participation and completion of the Youth Employment Training Academy
  5. Increase employment, as evidenced by the number of students placed at employment sites
