St. Nicks Alliance Youth & Education serves more than 3,000 young people from UPK through high school each year with a seamless continuum of comprehensive services that target the developmental needs of youth as they grow.
We seek to positively influence school attendance and attachment, enthusiasm for learning, social-emotional skills, and academic and employment self-efficacy. By building steady progress in these areas, we equip young people to graduate from high school and acquire the essential skills for post-secondary success.
