The Alternative Education Strategy is designed to provide opportunities for youth and young adults to obtain their High School diplomas. Alternative Education programs targets youth who are off-track, have attended multiple schools, are suspended or expelled for disruptive and/or delinquent behavior, or have generally been unsuccessful at learning in a mainstream or traditional educational environment.

DCYF allocated $1,013,000 in annual funding to two programs at two agencies for the Alternative Education Strategy.

Strategy Goals include:

  • To provide participants with a supported educational environment that helps prevent students from dropping out of school.

  • To reengage students in their education in order to assist them in getting academically on-track to graduate.
