Our multigenerational model is a holistic approach to dropout prevention and reconnecting youth with advocacy, engagement, and action that transforms and improves the quality of life for all participants. Using our COMPASS (COMmunity PArtners for Sustainable Success) Model, SOSSI has developed into a network of educators, industry professionals, nonprofits, businesses, and community leaders working to positively impact and sustain communities.

                     Services increase the community's capacity to decrease the                      number of dropout students by increasing the following:

  • Literacy Levels

  • Opportunities for Success

  • Academic Performance

  • Financial Literacy

  • School Attendance

  • Workforce Readiness

  • Graduation Rates

  • Quality of Life

  • Parent, Family & Community Engagement

  • Computational Thinking & Computer Science Skills


SOSSI teaches the importance of 21st-century learning skills, professional skills, and entrepreneurship. We work to raise awareness in the community. Our partners gain stronger collaboration among traditional school systems, workforce agencies, and community organizations.
