This session will present the COOP (Cooperative Work Training) Program which is an alternative school program for your hard to reach students. It will present what a COOP program looks like in the school. COOP is designed for the at-risk youth who are endanger of dropping out of high school in order to motivate them to earn their high school diploma and set them up for a personal plan once they graduate. Different strategies for motivating at-risk youth in the academic environment as well as the work force will be presented. Tools will be shared to reach the hardest to reach students due to the struggles which they are having in their personal lives. The purpose of a cooperative learning environment is to collaboratively work with the stakeholders in the community to educate and motivate the "whole" student. Data will be shared regarding the success of the program, as well as student artifacts and provide different avenues in which to reach the community in order to get involved in the program.
