Project Report | Jul 12, 2023
Congratulations to the recent graduates!!!

By Cianna D. Hall-Benitez | VISTA AMERICORPS

Dear friends and supporters,

First, thank you for making this possible for our youth! Your support means a lot to all of us at Jóvenes de Puerto Rico en Riesgo Inc. Thank you!

We want to let you know that with our Caney (Academic Support Center and Safe Space) we continue to provide academic support through supervised homework, tasks, tutoring, individualized support, study plans and educational workshops to at-risk youth students.

In the past months 783 young participants from our Cibari, Inabo programs and regular students visited the Caney for a safe space. We’ve had 100% school retention, 65% of our young people use the services of our centers in the schools, and 148 high school students were served through the Caney. This data includes participating students ‘Inabos’ and regular students of the school where we have projects (San Juan, Canóvanas, Juncos and Naguabo).

We are just so happy with the achievements that we have had in the recent months and wanted to share it with you!

And, the other great news is that 8 of our youth have graduated from high school! This is very important and significant for all of us because some of the youngsters that we support were students that didn't have any aspirations to continue their education.

Let's celebrate that these students have not dropped out of school, stayed to study, have improved in academic progress and completed their high school grade. Thank you for all your support!

With gratitude, 

Jóvenes de Puerto Rico en Riesgo Team
