Contact Youth Development Programs
(formerly Way To Graduate/Paving "R" Way)
Elementary and Middle School

Contact Youth Development programs help keep children on track for school success and high school graduation through a variety of services, including case management, afterschool academic and enrichment activities and summer programming to promote academic retention.

Programs featuring one or more of these services currently operate at Grant and Danforth middle schools in the Syracuse City School District and Roxboro Road elementary and middle schools in the North Syracuse School District. We are also available to consult with other interested districts.

On-site during the school year
Case management. Our staff maintains regular contact with youth who qualify for non-traditional case management. Our youth development specialists may support them in the classroom or meet with them at lunchtime to work on academic and study skills, behavioral strategies, and life skills. They may even act as on-site "parents" for meetings with administrators. Contact staff can also facilitate referrals to the school psychologist or social worker.

Academic support. Academic success is a priority. Our staff works with participants’ teachers to develop an academic "prescription" for homework help and individual and small-group tutoring. We maintain contact with the school team and monitor students’ attendance and academic records. Academic facilitators provide tutoring and project-based enrichment activities in some programs.

Enrichment activities. Our summer camps promote academic retention during the summer vacation. Certified teachers provide tutoring and facilitate project-based enrichment activities.

Non-academic enrichment activities develop life skills, social and emotional skills and healthy behaviors. Activities include career exploration, sports, performing and creative arts. Youth also participate in peer support groups addressing bullying, communication, conflict management, respect, diversity, managing emotions and team-building.

Summer camp
Summer camp on the school campus promotes academic retention during the summer vacation through tutoring and engaging project-based enrichment activities. Youth also participate in games, creative arts and other enrichment activities.
