Every year over 1.2 million U.S. students drop out of high school.

About us

Center 360 is a grassroots non-profit organization that provides a holistic approach to career development. Our aim is to empower middle school students who are at-risk of disengaging from school by providing them with life skills training, personal development, and career enrichment activities. We create a safe space where youth can learn self-awareness and resilience, develop academic persistence, and be exposed to career opportunities in the fields of Music, Arts, Athletics, and Technology.


Once a student enters high school but has lost interest in education, they develop a history of classroom disturbances and poor academic skills, and it takes a tremendous proactive effort to assist a student in redirecting their lives.  Center 360 has found that providing a youth with a safe place that has programs and individuals that care and are consistent in their lives, can serve as a powerful reinforcement of positive behavior.


Currently, youth grades 5 - 8 are the majority served by Center 360. Middle school age youth represent a critical group as they transition to high school.


The mission of Center 360 is to empower youth who are at risk of disengaging from school by providing non-traditional enrichment opportunities.
