|Nonprofit PACT helps at-risk 10-15 year olds
make their transition to adulthood a success! In
PACT, kids avoid two of the worst "wrong turns"
they can make: joining a gang or dropping out
There is no potent lobby to speak for at risk kids.

|This year PACT, acclaimed for how its adult-mentored Work Ethic (WE) program's "learning by doing" built self-esteem into upwards of 1000 at-risk 10-15 year olds, will now offer paid internet corporation internships, social media marketing, leadership and public speaking workshops, college campus and worksite explorations and monthly "take charge of your life" forums.|
|This year, PACT's Lifetime Education Empowerment Program (LEEP)will lead a nationally significant in school/after school demonstration with 20 struggling 7th graders. Each will proceed at his/her own pace, "learning how to learn," 1/2 time on the computer and 1/2 time on a work book, with the full-time help of two monitors for each class of 10, plus probing individual cognitive testing to identify and clear learning blocks.|
