Taken from an underserved demographic (students from schools of 45-55% graduation rates), 100% of UNL’s high school students graduate on time and 98% progress forward to secondary education – be it college, trade school or military service. Come learn about UNL’s success secret from it’s President, Yvette Cook. She will disclose why and how UNL’s programming is so successful. You’ll also hear an inspiring first hand account from UNL’s youth ambassador, James Harris, a graduate of the program and how this unique programming provided him with the tools necessary to turn his life around.
