Graduation Alliance wants to say “thanks”!

From border to border and coast to coast, Graduation Alliance has worked in partnership with hundreds of school districts to help students develop social-emotional learning skills, re-engage after dropping out, make college and career plans, and obtain workforce certifications.

And if there’s one thing we’ve noticed in nearly every district in which we work, it’s this: School counselors are absolute heroes. From showing students why education is important, to helping young men and women learn how to make plans and dream big, to believing in the power and potential of young people,school counselors are a big reason why the national graduation rate has reached an all-time high and continues to grow.

All too often, though, school counselors are unsung heroes. So please join with us this week, National School Counselor Week, in thanking our nation’s school counselors for helping change the world, one student at a time.
