Community Partners, School District Representatives, artists, teachers, parents, mentors and youth will be in attendance at both events to identify opportu- nities for young .people to "Drop In" to school. The "Graduate New Mexico" initiative runs for 12 months and uses volunteers to support students as they re-en- gage with school or other learn- ing environments. Graduate New Mexico, It's Everybody's Business/has a goal of recruiting 10,000 dropouts throughout New Mexico by Fall 2011. The initiative includes new online options for dropouts to complete high school and earn a diploma. "Every New Mexican has a stake in setting graduating from high school as an expectation for all students. It's vital to our economy and the well-being of our state," states Governor Richardson. "Through Graduate New Mexico, It's Everybody's Business/ we are expanding the opportunities for dropouts to drop back in and earn their high school diploma. Our message is- 'if you think you can't, you can." The Wellness Coalition kickoff events will provide infor- mation so dropouts of any age can learn about online and other options to earn a high school di- ploma. There will also be experts on hand to offer information on mentoring, tutoring, and support for those who work or are parents. Those interested in earning their diploma will be matched with a support specialist who will help identify the best pathway to high school completion and will have the opportunity to sign up for support services on the spot. During the year The Wellness Coalition will provide technical and professional training to 125 volunteers who will recruit and support 300 drop" outs located in the four-county area. They will utilize "service learning" as an important reengagement strategy and to build stronger connections between students and their com- munities. The Wellness Coalition will also manage and report track- ing data to the Governor's Office. The distinctly different Kick Off events help The Wellness Coalition outreach to a larger and more diverse group of community members. Free refreshments and entertainment' will be available at both events.

The Bootheel Youth Association was one of thir- teen local (southwestern New Mexico) non-profit organizations who were awarded the Compas- sion Capital Fund, which is ear- marked for capacity building for non-profit organizations. Capacity building is com- monly referred to as the activi- ties done by an organization which increases its ability to achieve its mission. Award recipi- ents were picked by a carefully selected review committee which was based from the surrounding four counties. Awards were given based on the scores the recipients received from their application packets. The Capital Compassionate Fund has been made possible through the Wellness Coalition of Silver City. The fund is part of a program that is administered through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Bootheel Youth Association will use the funds to increase visibil- ity in the community by purchas- ing a new sign for the building located at 618 Pyramid Street. Other CCF funds will be used to purchase interactive learning kits which will be used in the BYA's Project Venture pro- gram which is implemented in the DTMS middle school. The BYA's next event is a Lake Kayaking trip at Bill Evans Lake, on August 28, 2010. For more information, in- terested persons can stop by the BYA building @ 618 Pyramid St. in Lordsburg.
