Succeed Don't Leave 

A Day in the Life: Peers Making the Case for Staying in School

Succeed Don't Leave is a video that captures the thoughts of school-aged children and chronicles the experiences of a pre-determined number of high-school dropouts 18-24 years of age who through some personal epiphany now realize the importance of staying in school. Features students from the neighborhood surrounding the North Avenue Library as well as current students and graduates of the J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College Middle College program.
