Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection

HW-SC in Binghamton & Union-Endicott

Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection helps youth stay in school, earn their high school diplomas and prepare for college or employment. In Binghamton and Union-Endicott schools, eligible students enter the program in grade 9, and work with school-based Youth Advocates who provide 360-degree support. Our YAs help students develop good habits, acquire social skills, and achieve their potential to become contributing, responsible young people at home, in school and at work.

HW-SC participants typically enjoy significantly higher on-time graduation rates than their peers. In 2019, 94% of students who stayed with HW-SC throughout high school received their diplomas on time. And that number jumped to 99% of participating students who employed with job partners graduate from high school.
