Liberty Partnerships Program

The K-12 University Center at Rochester Institute of Technology facilitates the Liberty Partnerships Program in collaboration with Greece Olympia Junior and Senior High School and Rochester City School District, supporting more than 300 youth each year. Funded by the New York State Education Department, RIT LPP is part of the state's strategy to maximize the successful transition of middle and high school students, who are at risk of dropping out of school, into graduates who are fully prepared for the rigors of higher education and the competitive demands of the workplace. 

 Program Overview

Upon referral and acceptance into LPP, students receive services that align with their social and emotional needs and the associated risk of dropping out of school. RIT LPP offers a variety of services aimed at improving high school graduation rates and preparing students for postsecondary education or workforce entry. Services include individual case management, civic engagement, college and career readiness programs, experiential learning, family support services, leadership development, mentorship, personal learning plans and summer programming.
