The Success for Our Seniors (SOS) program addresses the issue of ensuring that high school seniors in Delaware are prepared to thrive after they graduate. Many students across the state may not be ready to tackle their post-graduation goals. The SOS program will provide individualized guidance and support to help students identify the path they want to pursue after graduation, and help move them towards achieving their goals so they can be successful in life. The program provides specific actionable steps based on the student’s chosen path and includes checklists, detailed information sessions, connections to resources, and 1:1 guidance where needed.

The first pilot of the program will take place in Dover High School with the collaboration of United Way of Delaware, the Delaware Workforce Development Board, and Capital School District.
