What is D2?
Our mission is to connect out-of-school and disengaged youth ages 15-21 into an educational pathway with other resources and supports needed to earn a high school diploma and prepare for post-secondary opportunities and a career.
In short, we’re here to help you earn your diploma and plan for your future!
All services offered by the D2 Center are free and we’re available to meet wherever it’s convenient for you!
