Better Together Summer VISTA
Better Together has organized into regional, cross-sector, collaborative workgroups along the cradle to career continuum. These workgroups aim to increase student success by promoting a growth mindset, aligning and leveraging existing resources and developing specific innovative, data-driven initiatives. One such initiative is the 8+9 Project, which is a collaborative of existing and expanded programs and schools throughout Central Oregon who are working collectively around a shared vision & outcomes to increase graduation rates and ensure long-term student success. These organizations and schools are collectively supporting students during the vulnerable transition from 8th to 9th grade by providing free, fun, & future focused programs in the summer before & after 8th grade with link to a mentor program at the start of 9th grade. The 8+9 organizations are focused on collectively impacting the following outcomes: *Increase the number of 9th grade students on-track to graduate *Increase the number of 8th & 9th graders attending school regularly *Increase the number of 9th grade students linked to a mentor at the beginning of high school.
