QOLIG, or Quality of Life Index Group, identified the need to study the high school dropout rate of South Carolina students. As the number of students who drop out before the 12th grade continues to grow, group members recognized the need for a form of mentorship to take place between the students and their community. Through their examination of high school dropout rates in South Carolina, QOLIG members constructed a website that presents a great deal of information related to the escalating dropout rate. It also serves as an information portal to aide students who wish to go back to school and re-enroll or to assist those who are interested in earning a GED. Group members felt that this website may be a way to encourage young men and women to stay in school and to present facts on the advantages of obtaining a higher form of education.
