Summary The purpose of this project is to develop a support intervention program and to create an assessment tool that allows for the evaluation of the program's effectiveness that may serve as a promising and informative tool for implementing programs that serve the needs of the student population in alternative educational facilities. The interventions' focus is to increase students' motivation, hopefulness, school connectedness, sense of belonging, goal setting skills, conflict resolution skills, self-regulation skills, and college awareness. The overall objective of the support intervention programs is to promote improvement in grades and attendance with the hopes for post-secondary school continuity and achievement.
