North Greenwood Resource Center

The North Greenwood Resource Center addresses the need for financial stability by providing individuals with job search and preparation services, training and certifications, and financial education through ongoing programs and partner relationships that meet the needs of employers and residents.

The North Greenwood Resource Center addresses additional financial needs by providing technology and resources for families and individuals to connect with ACCESS, health care plans, and other programs that lead to financial stability.

The North Greenwood Resource Center, through Operation Graduate, addresses the need for increased High School Graduation rates by providing ongoing mentoring, tutoring, credit recovery, and college enrollment programs.

OPERATION GRADUATE

Operation Graduate is a partnership between United Way Suncoast, the Clearwater Police Department, Pinellas County School District, and St. Petersburg College. The focus of Operation Graduate is on-time high school graduation. The program targets two groups of students. One takes credit recovery classes so they can graduate with their peers; the other group is introduced to college and work experiences.

OPERATION GRADUATE OBJECTIVES

  • To increase the number of youth with on-time graduation.
  • To introduce college and work experiences to youth. One hundred percent of dual enrollment students passed the college experience component of the project.
  • To develop life skills among youth.
  • To provide youth and families with service referrals and interventions.
