Population Served:

Our two public schools and three learning labs focus on non-traditional students seeking non-traditional ways to acheive success in their education. All of our schools and learning labs throughout the valley serve under-servered/under-resourced youth. Students often have backgrounds with incarcerations (individual or family), teen pregnancy, bullying, mental health/behavioral issues, etc. We encourage all our staff and volunteers to find new and innovative ways for students to learn.

We believe ALL kids are capable of success-no exceptions! 

Community Need:

Communities that our schools are located in have higher rates of poverty, crime, homelesseness, addiction, and joblessness. Through interventions, such as tutoring and mentoring, these communities will be filled with members that are better prepared for the skilled workforce through education and life skills training, ultimately breaking the cycle of poverty. Students are in need of intensive guidance and support to increase awareness of opportunities and a more positive self outlook.

Community Impact:

In an effort to reach a broader population, Blueprint Education offers innovative ways for students to meet their educational needs. Students who receive tutoring/mentoring are more likely to continue with schooling, maintain a positive outlook on the future, reduce prevalence of crime, pregnancy and addiction. Providing academic and career guidance to students will reduce poverty in the community and surrounding areas. Students who recieve more intensive support will show an increase in preparation for the skilled workforce.

Many students are/will be first generation graduates-increasing the communities capacity to improve unemployement rates.
