For over 25 years, Check & Connect (C&C) mentors have helped keep thousands of students on track toward graduation. C&C is the only dropout prevention intervention listed on the IES What Works Clearinghouse found to have positive effects on staying in school.
Dear Check & Connect Community,
We are all struggling to adjust to this unprecedented and difficult time. At Check & Connect, we know that the students you mentor may be facing exceptional hardships. Students and families may also be having difficulty in addressing needs normally provided by the school, such as food, mental health and, of course, education. We will be sharing a series of special edition Mentor Messages to our C&C community with links to resources and an invitation to join conversations with our C&C community using the Slack app. Sign up to receive our special edition Mentor Messages and monthly newsletter. You may also follow our Blog, Facebook, or Twitter to hear more.
We invite you to join our Slack for Check & Connect. This is a space where C&C mentors and coordinators from around the world can encourage each other, ask questions, and share resources and tips. You can use Slack on your computer or add the free app here: Slack for Apple or Slack for Android. We have also created a Slack for Check & Connect "How to Get Started" guide. Our Blog will feature additional information on using Slack. We have also created a Slack for Check & Connect "How to Get Started" guide (PDF).
