All Roads Lead to Eastern project
Across the nation, more than 1 million students delay graduation or drop out of high school each year. In the District of Columbia, less than 70% of students will graduate on time. Even among District of Columbia high school graduates, unemployment rates hover near 20%, indicating many graduates lack the skills they need to succeed. We can do better.
At Eastern Senior High School and its community of middle and elementary schools, Companies for Causes CEOs invest strategically to support students on their road to graduation. We utilize our time, money and expertise to support programs and people so that more students graduate with the knowledge, skills and abilities to succeed in college and the workforce.
