In its inaugural 2021-22 school year, EYI will serve 9th graders identified by our partnering school, Washington High School, as most at risk of school failure or drop-out. However, EYI will also serve youths of high school age from the other high schools in the Cedar Rapids Community School District (CRCSD). If EYI has enough quality mentors, staff, and resources, no youth will be turned away.
In future academic years, EYI plans to expand its services to youth in:
- All grades 9-12 in all high schools in the CRCSD.
- Grades 6-8 in all middle schools in the CRCSD.
- All elementary schools in the CRCSD, starting at age 7.
