Title:  Facilitating Long-Term Improvements in Graduation and Higher Education for Tomorrow (FLIGHT)/Take Stock in Children (TSIC)
Description: The intervention report summarizes the WWCs examination of the impact of Take Stock in Children's (TSIC's) FLIGHT program on high schools students' college access and enrollment, general achievement, and attendance.

The FLIGHT intervention is designed to provide students with wrap-around case-management services including college preparation assistance, academic monitoring, and behavioral monitoring. Eligible students are connected with volunteer mentors, student advocates, and provided a two-year scholarship to college. FLIGHT also provides students and parents with workshops that cover a range of topics such as goal setting, study skills, and college preparation and applications. FLIGHT students also have access to college transition and retention services in their first three semesters of college.

Based on the most recent available evidence, the WWC found that FLIGHT had potentially positive effects on college access and enrollment for recent high school graduates. There were no discernible effects on general achievement or attendance for high school students.
