Education Alliance AmeriCorps Mentors is a dropout prevention initiative that supports students who are at-risk of failing school due to truancy, behavior problems, and poor course performance. Consistent ongoing mentoring considerably increases students' school attendance, behavior and course performance and thereby improves their chances of successful high school graduation.
