Advocacy Programs

As part of our unique Alternative Learning Opportunities Program (ALOP), West40’s advocates become the support system that students have never had in their lives.

How we help

For a struggling student, problems tend to have a domino effect. A challenging home life causes academic struggles, which leads to attendance issues, and leave the student feeling isolated. But the West40 Advocacy Programs changes the game, refusing to label kids or to let the cycle continue.

“Middle school and high school are hard for every kid. We’re there to make sure no one slips through the cracks.”

-Brian, West40 Student Advocate
