CHECK & CONNECT


Check & Connect is a program developed to re-engage students in their education.
Through long-term sustained support, Check & Connect seeks to build a relationship with each student that will serve to connect them with their school and aid in their progress towards graduation.
Weekly conversations, tutoring and homework help form the basis for a trusted bond between the student and the Check & Connect monitor. This enables the monitor to individually and definitively determine the interventions best suited to the students’ needs. The monitor then works on behalf of the student as a mentor, tutor, problem-solver, listener and case advocate.
