All In for Youth helps youth succeed by creating positive adult-youth connections and removing barriers that often prevent high school completion and the successful transition into further education, employment or training. When youth have positive social support networks, they are better equipped to develop skills, be independent and confident, complete high school and pursue long-term goals. The costs associated with non-completion of high school affect more than just the individual. For every youth that doesn’t graduate, it costs society $18,301 annually in loss of wages, in increased use of social assistance and health care, increased crime rates, and tax revenue loss.
