Once students make the decision to drop out, they lack the tools to compete in today's society and diminish their chances for greater success in the future.But the decision to drop out of school does not happen overnight; it comes after years of frustration and failure. Often, those that drop out have run out of motivation and have no source of support or encouragement in school or at home. The goal of the BoostUp campaign is to support, encourage, and create an identity for those who may be at risk of dropping out.Thanks to a variety of national resources, including www.mentoring.org - which provides a zip code based search of mentoring and similar volunteer opportunities - the BoostUp campaign is providing tools for local communities to keep their students on the path to graduation.

For students to succeed, they need to be in school. Many people think that attendance only matters in the higher grades, but that's not true. Consistent attendance is very important for younger students too. An estimated 5 million to 7.5 million students miss 18 or more days of school each year. That's about 10 to 15 percent of U.S. students. It is everyone's responsibility to ensure students are in school and succeeding.
