Oregon ranks 47th in the nation for percentage of students who graduate from high school with youth of color most heavily impacted:
71% of white students,
60% of Latino and
53% of Black youth graduate.
Yet education is a proven foundation of future financial stability and overall welfare. iWILL employs storytelling (Narrative Therapy) – a culturally responsive method for children of color- to transform likely high school dropouts into motivated students with a vision for their futures and the confidence to carry them out.
