The Yunion’s Check & Connect initiative is an intensive, research-based model for students who are disconnected or at risk of disconnecting from school and learning. The Yunion has chosen Check & Connect as part of its commitment to develop a replicable, intensive school-based delivery model in targeted Detroit area schools.
STEM/Drone School Based Program
We are taking STEM-based learning into an interactive space with our Drone Apprenticeship Program. This unique program will introduce students to drone and other sophisticated technologies via a virtual platform. Allowing students the opportunity to learn Drone Operation and Use, applicable laws and regulations for Drone use, and to be introduced to various in-demand employment opportunities related to Drone use.
Through our partnerships, we offer an evidenced based life skills curriculum, skills-trade training, financial literacy, STEM
Drone classes, career coaching, case management, academic tutoring, SAT/ACT tutoring, college preparation facilitation, and trainings for parents. Each designed to encourage, educate and empower youth to achieve not only a high school diploma but to give students more options post-graduation.
Tutoring/Homework Assistance sessions will include remediation, test-taking skills enhancement, and homework assistance in areas of math and reading comprehension.
Individual and/or Family Counseling
We provide Individual Counseling to adolescents who are attempting to cope with a wide spectrum of life problems such as interpersonal difficulties, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, and more. We also offer Family Counseling in conjunction with our child and adolescent counseling.
Parental Advisory Parent Workshop
Our Parental Advisory Training is a 90-minute interactive, multi-media session that exposes the negative effect that the mass media is having on our children. Through powerful imagery, video, and engaging discussions, we address the root cause of adolescent risk behaviors such as substance abuse, violence, teen pregnancy, fatherlessness, bullying, and underage drinking.
