Learnings from the Valued Youth Program – Podcast Episode 15 | Podcast Episode 15
Classnotes Podcast (June 28, 2007) The IDRA Valued Youth Partnership program is a research-based, internationally-recognized dropout prevention program that has kept 98 percent of its tutors in school. This internationally-recognized program creates transformations in students, teachers, and schools. Since its inception in 1984, the lives of more than 220,000 children, families and educators have been positively impacted by the program. Linda Cantu, Ph.D., and Juanita García, Ph.D., discuss several things they have learned during more than two decades of experience with IDRA’s highly-successful dropout prevention program, the Coca-Cola Valued Youth Program. Linda and Juanita are interviewed by Aurelio M. Montemayor, M.Ed., director of the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center.
Note: In 2019, the program name changed from “IDRA Coca-Cola Valued Youth Program” to “IDRA Valued Youth Partnership.”
