With Navigation, our groundbreaking holistic strategy, we reached 100 vulnerable students and family members with personalized, wraparound supports in our first year. Year two means taking what we've learned and applying it to not only to working with young children and families, but also to college and career-bound teens. Please download our Year One Update.
EnCompass Navigation layers supports which connect students to their peers, families, schools, and community. We are applying learnings to working with middle and high school students to prepare them for success in college and careers.
