“I am going to be a stock broker,” one student told me. Others: “A marketer.” “An actor.” “A physical education instructor.”
The students of UCHS have big plans. At UCHS Student Success Center, staff, students and volunteers work together, charting a course to college and career success. I was privileged to observe the SSC in action as a visitor from YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School. I was impressed and inspired by what I saw. From engaging conversations during Advisory, to financial aid advising at the Satellite Center, to spirited discussion about the significance of flash mobs in a Leaders of Change seminar—my day was a whirlwind tour of the terrific work UCHS SSC to secure students’ future success.
