Hope College Information Session
Serving the Disconnected Youth In South Phoenix
South Mountain Community College (SMCC), a Maricopa County Community College, and the Maricopa County Regional School District (MCRSD) are working together to find a solution that will re-connect the youth in South Phoenix.
MCRSD is proposing to develop a high school campus – Hope College and Career Readiness Academy – focused on re-connecting these young adults. This Academy will provide disconnected youth in South Phoenix with an opportunity to return to school and receive specialized training while obtaining their high school diplomas.
Research indicates that traditional educational routes are not working for these young adults. Working together, we can prepare all teens and young adults with the skills they need to be productive, fulfilled citizens and community members.
