Connecting Through Service (CTS)

Created an effective and system-level process to increase student engagement by utilizing a collaboration with existing partners. This process was accomplished through a strategic integration of four research-based strategies for engaging high school students at-risk of dropping out of Fond du Lac Ojibwe School. These strategies included:

  1. Implementing Check & Connect (C&C): A nationally recognized, research-based comprehensive student engagement intervention,
  2. Embedding service-learning as a continuous component of core academic curricula;
  3. Integrating entrepreneurial standards and skills within service-learning projects focused on addressing community needs; and
  4. Implementing a youth leadership group to support on-going student voice and leadership.
