Locally, as well as nationwide, Civil Rights data show that male students of color are three to four times more likely to get suspended from school than their white counterparts. The Future Ready Advocate Mentoring Program works with many of these students in an effort to decrease those statistics.
In addition to administrator referral, Future Ready Advocates (FRAs) use real-time data to track students in middle and high schools who are frequently targeted for discipline infractions. The FRAs mentor the students and form a relationship with them, working on self awareness, social awareness, responsible decision making, and peer relationships. The goal is to not only help with behavioral issues and academics, but to teach life skills to students to ensure they are future ready.
