Charlotte High School students at risk of being suspended or dropping out are getting some help from the Urban League of Rochester. 

Urban League president William Clark says they're teaming up with the Rochester City School District to support kids who haven't been showing up to school every day. "Our counselors actually meet with the students first and try to resolve any issues they may have, be it personal, family, or whatever, that would prevent them from coming to school. They meet with the teachers and also meet with the parents and get them fully engaged in the education."   

The ESL Charitable Foundation is providing a $12,500 grant to support the Youth Intervention Program.
