MY TURN is a dropout prevention and intervention solution for small, high-poverty cities in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
The organization works with in-school and out-of-school youth, ranging in age from 14 to 21, as they make gateway decisions in their lives. Its goal is to equip youth with the life plans and tools they will need to succeed, and to guide young people through critical life decisions, helping them advance to college and to jobs with a future.
EMCF invested $7.8 million in MY TURN from 2003 to 2010. During this period, MY TURN expanded operations into New Hampshire, established sites in new cities across Massachusetts, and made programmatic improvements to its out-of-school and in-school program models.
