THE STORY:

Students are constantly dropping out of school. *Over 1.2 million students drop out of school every year. 

Without a diploma, finding employment becomes more difficult and the likelihood of engaging in illegal activity increases. Incarceration rates are already high in the U.S., especially for Black males. 

Although some dropouts manage to find success, the cycle of poverty will surely continue to exist when students drop out. 

I advocate for City Year because this organization is all about decreasing the drop out rate and making higher education a reality for students. Students need mentors and role models.

Please support me as I run for City Year by donating to this important cause, for the greater good of the students facing a disadvantage and for the good of our society.
