Regional Charter School Network
With a mission to find and support students who typically fall through the cracks, this education group helps students recover education and not only graduate, but get on a path for career success. Partnering with 100 businesses in a state that ranks 43rd in the labor market, Oakmont Education offers students mentorship and resiliency training to ensure students have opportunities to build the skills necessary to succeed in the world beyond their school’s walls. Drawing on her own educational experiences as a youth who dropped out of school, Chris Gulacy-Worrel, who leads the group’s advocacy efforts, works to expand opportunities in their communities and beyond. With the capacity to grow to accept hundreds more students, the team is committed to creating an environment that is individualized, self-paced and career-driven as a way to uniquely reengage and support disconnected students toward excelling in their education and their future.
