b&b142 The Urban Alliance: Transforming the school-to-prison pipeline into the school-to-opportunity pipeline

Urban Alliance serves economically disadvantaged students on the verge of graduating high school, but are at high risk of not connecting to further education or meaningful work. We spoke with Stephanie Amponsah, the Executive Director of Urban Alliance in the Baltimore region, and Dedrick Asante-Muhammad (we interviewed him in episode 138), about the Urban Alliance’s program and the successes it has had and will continue to have.
