Options For Youth Success at Pipeworks
After a years worth of regular monthly visits to Sacramento Pipeworks, Options For Youth
, a program for at-risk youth saw some amazing results. Says Brad Astin, Outdoor Experience Supervisor: "After crunching some numbers following our Winter Graduation, we found that the Outdoor Experience Program had a 95% retention rate among students and graduated 5 of its participants already. The retention rate means that of the 20 "at-risk" students who participated in the program, only 1 had dropped out of school as of 12/18/09. That number is far superior to our overall population and speaks volumes to the value of the experiences our students had in the program. We are very excited to get it going again!"
Congratulations, Brad. We at Pipeworks are looking forward to again playing a small part in the success of all the students in the Outdoor Experience program!
