For students from Sixth Grade through post-secondary education

Future Success wants all Maine’s youth prepared for college, trainings and career options so they are ready to launch successful adult lives. MaineSpark’s Future Success track is a network of MaineSpark coalition member agencies working on providing tools that support students in successfully transitioning from high school to their next education and/or career path; promoting Career and Technical Education opportunities; and developing school-based workforce recruitment and education leadership. Its members’ programs include JMG’s Drop Out Recovery program, which counsels youth back into quality jobs and post-secondary enrollment, and the Island Institute’s Island Fellows Program, which places recent college graduates in professional positions in Maine’s year-round island communities.
