Dropout: With an average ratio of 2 students to 1 volunteers in our tutoring programs, high school and elementary students benefit from personalized tutoring to meet each of their needs. After the 2017-18 school year, 0% of our 67 high school participants dropped out.
Employability: Phelps developed its Compass Program to help local youth discover their future career and educational paths; it also supports transitions to adult and post-secondary education, and connecting local employers with individuals seeking employment. In its first year, 75 youth received support from the program.
Bilingualism: Phelps strives to promote the importance of bilingualism. Our new Phelps en français program provides a Francophone environment for English-speaking high school students to practice their French, while receiving help with their homework. Phelps has also expanded its range of bilingual programs and now offers an elementary homework program directly at the local French school.
