The Success School
Mission: Provide real-world learning opportunities for area students to increase academic engagement and excite young people about future careers to help shape tomorrow’s workforce for employers in Monroe County.
The 5 Keys:
The Success School, formerly known as the Franklin Initiative, acts as the connection between the business community and the education community. We serve students by introducing them to many different potential career options, providing them with opportunities to interact with professionals in different fields and helping them understand that graduating from high school is crucial for future success. We also serve the business community by providing workforce development services for youth and meaningful volunteer opportunities for business professionals in our career learning programs while helping to shape our community’s future workforce.
The Success School offers several hands-on Career Learning Programs throughout the school year. Over 1,700 elementary, middle school and high school students from Monroe County participate in The Success School programs annually.
These programs are possible thanks to our many wonderful sponsors and volunteers who help with each program offered by The Success School. Several hundred local professionals, college students, and other community members volunteer for these programs each year.
