Learn On

Learn On is an academic support program for youth aged 13 – 21. Learn On aims to bridge systemic inequities in educational attainment, enhance academic opportunities for youth, and support youth as they enter adulthood by providing academic and social supports in Clubs.

Learn On has activities and resources across three focus areas:

Academic Support
Encompasses activities that directly and indirectly support youth in finding success in their academic life and graduating high school on time.

Transitional Support
Refers to activities that assist youth in moving between milestone events in their academic and personal lives.

Social-Emotional Wellbeing
Refers to the intentional activities within Learn On that will support youth’s overall wellness. This will include specialized training for staff on regulation, trauma-informed practice, and emotional intelligence.

Youth who participate in Learn On are supported in reaching the following outcomes:

  • increased confidence in their ability to ultimately complete high school;
  • increased sense of engagement in their learning;
  • increased sense of resilience when faced with barriers to educational attainment;
  • develop the skills, support, and knowledge to ease the transitions between grades and life milestones;
