Increasing student re–engagement to prevent dropout and reoffending.

About

About the Education Advocate Program

Youth offenders re-entering the community face a number of systems level and individual barriers that place them at-risk of failing during the re-entry process. To effectively address these obstacles the Education Advocate program is designed to increase the success of youth released from both the County Detention Centers and Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration (JRA) facilities through the implementation of a comprehensive case management model.

Working with Cowlitz and Clark County detention center partners, Education Advocates provide education case management services to youth involved in the juvenile justice system in an effort to increase student re-engagement and prevent dropout and reoffending. The project also serves youth coming out of state juvenile facilities who are transitioning back to school, workforce or GED.

As always, at the core of our mission is a commitment to equity, and ESD 112 is doing everything we can to support districts in the region towards equitable learning this fall.
