Future Ready

We Help Teens Chart Paths To Graduation and Successful Futures

Future Ready is our year-round program for students in grades 6 through 12. Tutoring promotes academic achievement, college and career enrichments expose students to college and career pathways and build social-emotional skills. Students complete 30 hours of job-readiness training and are placed in jobs with our Employer Partners. Every teen works 1:1 with a Navigator to plan the future of their choice.


Future Ready

Future Ready prepares students grades 7-12 for lifelong success. They receive year-round academic and navigation support as they develop job and life skills. Students work with their Navigator to chart a personalized college and career plan, and we work with employer partners to match students with jobs. Once placed, we continue to develop students as employees through workshops, hands-on learning experiences, and academic support.

Eligible students live in the City of Rochester and attend more than 20 different schools.
