• This is not just another program that promises to be there when you need it but never comes through. It empowers students to realize that they can get better grades, stay in school, graduate and go on to post-secondary education.

Quincy Connected

Quincy: Connected helps a small, rural, isolated school district with few external resources address common academic and social problems through afterschool programming that provides academic support to 250 regularly attending students, over 95% of whom are Hispanic and 90% low-income.

NLA tutors work with students one-on-one to bolster their skills in math, science and reading and offer positive role models. Students participate in field trips to boost their interest in STEM fields including a Washington STEM Foundation-funded project involving students in sustainable green technology energy projects partnering with Wild Horse Windfarms and Grant County PUD’s Wanapum Dams. Other partners: University of Washington College of Engineering, Central Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, WSU Extension and Big Bend Community College.
