There's more than one program making a big impact on the Quad Cities high school education scene.
"One of the things that helps us to have great high school graduation rates is the fact that a lot of our students, most of our students, obviously, are engaged in high school and are interested and see it as relevant to their future," said Tara Barney of the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce.
The Quad Cities Chamber teams up with United Way to keep high schoolers on the right track.
United Way's Achieve Quad Cities program focuses on providing mentors, classroom presenters, and even tours of businesses to high school students.
