Program Description 
• Hilltop Pregnant Minors High School students range from 14-18 and many are learning English as a second language. Young women can start at our school while they are expecting & continue after their baby is born. The school is located in a building with many social service program for the young families. Students continue with their academic education as well as learning parenting skills, healthy baby strategies and useful community resources (including jobs & money management). Until this year, there was no library at Hilltop High School. We are creating a space that will include books & electronic resources for academics as well as pleasure reading for teenagers. We are also including a collection of infant & toddler books so teen moms will be able to read to the little ones. Rocking chairs in the library center will provide calm, restful & inviting seating for young moms & their children.
• Civic Center Court School serves school students grades 7 through 12.  Students from many areas of The City are identified as soon as they experience difficulty, allowing the focus to be on intervention rather than remediation. For the most at-risk students, those with habitual truancy, significant behavior issues, and histories of suspension and expulsion, the goal is to change behavior so that these students will stay in school and earn enough credits to graduate. As we establish the first library ever at Civic Center we are including popular urban lit, graphic novels & books about the justice system.
