Back To School/Success in School


History: Back to school/Success in School is a NAACP initiative that started in 1984. BTS is tailored to reduce truancy and drop out rates and to improve academic achievement among African American youth.  It is designed to assist students k-12 with academic, and social supports, which are required for them to recognize their full potential. To improve student achievement BTS offers tutoring and group mentoring opportunities. Cultural awareness, and parent involvement are integral components of the program.

The mission of the program is to increase the number of skilled and literate youth graduating from high school, by providing them with mentoring, tutoring, cultural activities and incentives for maintaining regular attendance, thus creating a more attractive approach to education. The local NAACP is entrenched in the enhancement of literacy and education and the development of employment and technology skills for local youth. This is why the collaboration with Lane Community College is key. Volunteers and resources help motivate at-risk students to stay in school!
Special invitation for K-12  students to gain:
– Academic Support & Excellence for Core Subjects
– Mentoring sessions
– Parent/Family Workshops
