Abstract

After developing a program to help high school students in an alternative learning center (ALC) plan for life after high school, the researcher contacted graduates and interviewed them via Facebook to assess the impact of this program. The researcher notes that this topic ( life after high school for ALC students ) is severely lacking in the literature. She interviewed five students that had previously completed a Continual Learning Plan with her, and found that two of the students had in fact been able to implement their plan, while the others faced continued roadblocks due to harsh life circumstances and were only partially able to reach their goals. The researcher will use what was learned to make improvements to the post-graduation planning process, including making the process a course within her high school with more time and support given to each student in creating their Continual Learning Plan.
