June has marked an especially important time for Youth Guidance. Across the city, we have celebrated alongside students, parents, and school administrators at countless 8th and 12th grade graduations – cheering on our youth as they march triumphantly across stage.
Graduation rates for Youth Guidance students were in excess of 88% last year, with comparable final tallies expected for the 2014-15 academic year. We applaud the hard work of our students who have come so far – often against tremendous obstacles – to reach this important achievement. It is a privilege to be part of their journey. We wish nothing but the very best for all of our youth as they embark on their next chapter. Congratulations Class of 2015!
