Community Education and Workforce Readiness
Skill-Building with Character Education, Life Skills and Professional Athlete Mentoring
You'll find the Kid's College online academic program ideal to support Community Education and Workforce Readiness youth programs. Our mission is to increase or refresh the basic proficiency skills of youngsters, teens and adults to maintain skills knowledge, and for preparation to enter the workforce or take the GED exam. Online instruction prescribes individualized lessons based on each youth's ability level, whether they are at grade level or behind. This ensures that learning takes place on a beginning ability level to address essential Math and Literacy skills. Through our adaptive process, every person can improve academic achievement and work at their own pace toward reaching their optimal learning zone.
Academic, Social and Character Skills
Online assessment diagnoses skills gaps and prescribes supplementary instruction suited to the individual youth's needs, easing the responsibility on program staff for differentiating instruction and assigning remediation. As foundational skills are mastered, challenging questions engage all learners to grasp new knowledge. In no time, Kid's College can prepare youth to enter the workforce with more skills confidence and, ultimately, contribute to the betterment of your organization and community. Weekly reports help your staff assess progress and document the program's accountability.

For Workforce and Community Education youth programs, Kid's College is most beneficial when paired with the Learning Through Sports' STAR Sportsmanship and STAR Mentors programs. This trio of online programs is proven to motivate at-risk youth to stay in school and to build 21st Century skills in Mathematics, Literacy, Leadership, Teamwork and Critical Thinking Skills.
The STAR Sportsmanship curriculum is an online Character Education & Life Skills program proven effective to improve student behavior in and out of school. STAR Sportsmanship supports soft skills for employment by focusing on the development of character traits and values important to succeed in the workplace. Age-appropriate, interactive video lessons cover important topics affecting today's youth, such as Respect, Teamwork, Leadership, Substance-Abuse and Critical Decision-Making.
For the STAR Mentors solution, Learning Through Sports has selected professional athlete mentors who have overcome many of the issues today's youth are dealing with such as drugs, bullying, gang activity, managing responsibilities and failing to engage at school. STAR Mentors are trained, positive role models who have an ability to communicate with at-risk youth and help them learn to succeed in schools, homes, peer groups and communities. Customized mentoring sessions address community issues and program needs. The ultimate goal is to promote exceptional character-building traits, problem solving and workforce ethics that benefit all areas of life.

Dropout Recovery: Reconnecting At-Risk Students Through Individualized Learning
Recent U.S. statistics show dropout rates on the rise, especially for males, minorities and children of low socio-economic status. When students continuously perform poorly, they disengage and feel trapped in a downward spiral of low academic achievement. These students are highly at-risk of problematic behaviors such as truancy, disciplinary problems and dropping out. We can help you catch these students before they fall out of reach.
