CYC’s Reengagement team reaches out to over 3,000 youth each year who have dropped out of school. For those interested in exploring educational options and getting back into school, an education plan is put into place and a relationship is established with one of CYC’s Reengagement Specialists. Together, transcripts are reviewed along with personal barriers, educational goals, and geographic location to ensure the best possible school fit. If you’re a student who wants to get back into school, click here.

Once the youth is reenrolled in school, CYC’s Reengagement Specialists continue to provide support through ongoing case management and connection to community resources that reduce barriers and boost a student’s chance to graduate from school.

Colorado Reengagement Network

The purpose of the Colorado Reengagement Network is to streamline the coordination of regional and statewide student reengagement efforts in order to better serve students throughout the state of Colorado.

The Colorado Reengagement Network creates a collaborative environment that connects school districts and educational service providers and encourages the sharing of ideas and experiences about dropout prevention and reengagement.
