by Jerome Smith
With high school dropout rates on the rise, how does one motivate students to stay in school? Veteran educator Jerome Smith has evolved a novel solution to this growing social problem—and it works!
The You Can Do It Program is an innovative curriculum that encourages high school students to graduate by not only introducing them to careers in the entertainment industry, but also by allowing them to take part in professional-level productions and providing them with mentors in the industry.
Poise Entertainment Education Company’s “Greatest” You Can Do It Program! is a must read for educators and parents who are looking for a creative way to show students why school is important and to introduce them to a career path they may never have known existed.
