How did the Delancy Street Foundation turn Hardened Criminals into productive members of society with EVERYONE OF THEM getting the High School Equivalency Degree (GED) and be trained in 3 different Markeable skills… 

http://www.delanceystreetfoundation.org/wwa.php

It was started in 1971 with 4 people in a San Francisco Apartment… and now has 5 locations in the united states – We have been taking in as residents representatives of our society’s most serious social problems and, by a process of each one helping another, with no professionals, no government funding, and at no charge to the clients, we have been solving these problems: generations of poverty, illiteracy, lack of job skills, hard core substance abuse, homelessness, crime, violence, teen pregnancy, and emotional and physical abuse. After an average of 4 years (a minimum stay of 2 years), our residents gain an academic education, 3 marketable skills, accountability and responsibility, dignity, decency, and integrity.

WHAT Is the Delancey Street Foundations Moto?  Each one Teach One

What do you want the School to be?  What do you want them to be ABLE TO DO?
