Founded in 1983, Portland Opportunities Industrialization Center (POIC) and Rosemary Anderson High School (RAHS) serve Portland’s at-risk youth. Providing mentorship, outreach, training and education, the agency and it’s four alternative high schools work to secure diplomas and employment for participants.

RAHS serves individuals who have dropped out of or been expelled from the public school system. Many of its students come from unstable family backgrounds or are homeless. With over 700 students enrolled across all of its campuses, RAHS’s diverse population has an 85% graduation rate.

POIC and RAHS’s success is made possible through the community’s support and involvement. To join their efforts or purchase tickets to the upcoming November 1 benefit Gala, visit their website.

Throughout the week we are sitting down with RAHS to learn more about their impact on at-risk youth as a part of our award-winning Community Voices series. These interview segments will be posted below.
