SAFE Program


The SAFE (Student and Family Engagement) Program is a college and career readiness leadership program that brings together youth, parents, teachers, and community members. The program is designed to meet the social and academic needs of historically underserved youth and their families and foster stronger bonds between students, families, and the community. The weekly “Talk the Talk” sessions use experiential and applied learning to teach community building, positive identity development, civic mindedness and service learning, financial literacy, and career and college readiness. 

Every week students, teachers, school counselors, and community members come together to work on academic, leadership and career and college readiness goals as part of the Rochester Public Schools SAFE (Student and Family Engagement) Program.  The SAFE Program expands access to career and college opportunities for students who will be the first in their family to attend college and for students underrepresented in post-secondary programs. 

The SAFE Program receives financial support from the Mayo Clinic, The United Way of Olmsted County, and Olmsted County Community Services.
