At Isles Youth Institute, we know that education goes beyond obtaining a high school diploma. Our alternative school supports students in achieving their academic and employment goals while emphasizing the character and leadership development skills vital to their long-term success and well-being. Our students are the future of Trenton. They will improve Trenton’s economy, spark homeownership and represent their constituents on City Council. Our job is to provide “the future of Trenton” with opportunities to impact their community.
That's why civic engagement is so integral to IYI. We believe in consistency, ongoing collaboration, and maintaining strong connections within the community. One example is our 10-year relationship with the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen where our students regularly volunteer. Another highlight is our five-year partnership with the Trenton Thunder F.I.E.L.D. Program in which our students help renovate little league fields across Trenton. Read about both below.
Lastly, February is Black History Month!
Join us on February 27 at City Hall for a Closing Celebration featuring IYI students' art and poetry.
Thank you for being a part of our students' journey.
