Highlighting a Year with PASS
Students from George Washington High School and H.H. Furness High School spent after-school hours in the PASS Program – Preparing For, Attaining and Sustaining Success, operated by JEVS. Seniors and juniors alike picked up valuable life skills, received college or post-secondary guidance, and developed key socialization techniques while exploring their own interests and developing plans for future success.
Many of our seniors are about to graduate, and 98% are planning to attend a college, university or trade school in the fall. Our junior students picked up some terrific presentation skills, developing and researching – and identifying possible solutions – to key challenges in their own communities.
Here are just a few of their stories.

"I'm headed to CCP to become an early education teacher. I've been inspired by the teachers at George Washington, and by Gloria from JEVS. They made me realize that someone can impact your life by the smallest things, and I want to impact the lives of others."
