RAMP (Ready to Achieve Mentoring Program)

RAMP is a career-focused, youth mentoring program serving youth with disabilities (14-18) who are at risk for court involvement or dropping out of high school. RAMP is funded by the Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and led by the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL).Peckham's RAMP site is one of only 12 national program sites. The RAMP model uses a combination of group, peer and one-on-one mentoring to promote a successful transition of RAMP youth to employment, continued learning opportunities and independent living.

This grant funded program partners with local organizations including the Ingham County 30th Circuit Court-Family Division and Michigan State University’s The Advantage program. RAMP adheres to the most reliable research to develop the most effective programming.  For more information about our evidence based curriculum, please follow the links: Why is #MiCareerTechEd Important?
