Welcome to Fast Forward!


Our goal is to help out-of-school youth return to high school, earn a diploma, achieve proficiency, and upon graduation, assist in placement into a college, vocational/technical school, or other career training.


Fast Forward is a FREE program that helps out-of-school youth to reclaim their education.

Open to Tri-Cities area youth, ages 16-21, who have dropped out of school, Fast Forward partners with traditional and alternative high schools, technical schools, community colleges, and other Tri-City area alternative education programs to provide an open pathway back to school and a diploma.
