“There is nothing like The Tutorial Center in Arizona, will you please come open one!”

That was the reaction of an Arizona Dept. of Education manager after attending TTC Executive Director Jack Glade’s workshop describing The Tutorial Center and its successful Youth Agriculture Project, given at the recent National Dropout Prevention Forum for Native and Tribal Communities. The attendees were educators from Native American communities across America — think Hawaii, Iowa, Alaska, Montana, the Dakotas, Florida as well as Arizona, New Mexico and Utah — looking to learn about educational programs that have proven results in helping high school dropouts reconnect to education and become high school graduates. Nationally, Native American communities experience very high dropout rates. Jack shared the successes of the Youth Agriculture Project and presented a model for replicating the Project in other communities.
