JA Step To Success

Kids have BIG dreams, but in Philadelphia those dreams stagnate starting in the third grade. The reality is that the disparity  between young adults with Postsecondary education and those without is impacting jobseekers more significantly than any other generation before them. Without a Postsecondary degree, young people take longer to find employment, earn 62% less, and are more likely to live in poverty than their more educated peers. If we don't change their thinking,  those statistics will become the REALITY for approximately half of the 12,000 third graders in Philadelphia schools this year.
