A night out for you helps at-risk Boise high school students

High school is hard enough with all the pressure associated with maintaining grades, fitting in, making good decisions and journeying to adulthood.

Add in challenges such as not having enough to eat or being diagnosed with depression, and obtaining that education becomes even more difficult.

This is where Helping High makes an impact. The program serves about 400 students at Frank Church High School, the alternative high school for the Boise School District.

The nonprofit organization helps students overcome life’s obstacles and stay in school through an incentive approach, ultimately moving them toward a brighter future.

You can help out by attending a special fundraising event. Taylor Law Offices is organizing a Helping High Homecoming, set for 7 to 11 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, at the Eighth & Main building, 800 W. Main St., Boise.

There will be music and dancing, a full bar, photo booth, food provided by Mai Thai, and live and silent auctions.

The cost is $50. To buy tickets and learn more about Helping High’s mission and incentive program, go to helpinghigh.com.
