Presented by: Truancy Intervention Project (TIP)

CLE: 2.5 CLE Hours, including 1 Professionalism Hour

Did you know that missing just 10% of the school year in 6th grade is strongly linked to academic course failure and even eventually dropping out of high school? That’s just 18 days — or two to three days per month! The Truancy Intervention Project or “TIP” strives to decrease chronic absenteeism by pairing trained volunteers with children and their families to provide them with the advocacy, resources and services necessary to ensure good attendance and success in school. Originating in Fulton County, TIP provides resources and intervention services to children who are chronically absent from school and, as a result, either become involved with the local juvenile court or are referred for early intervention at the school level.

The Truancy Intervention Project is always seeking new volunteers to help with the prevention of school failure. Volunteers from all walks of life participate in making a difference in the lives of children in urgent need. Volunteers work one on one with children, as advocates both inside and outside the courtroom and as ongoing sources of support to children on the brink of school failure.
