What We Do

We reduce the obstacles that cause students to drop out of school.
We provide educational support and motivation to help kids and teens keep studying.
We advocate for our students and help them succeed.

 We provide the following for our students:

  • Tutoring, mentoring and one-on-one attention

  • Special classes like art, crafts, dance, music, and cooking, etc.

  • Bible classes and devotionals

  • Daily hot meals 

  • School supplies and backpacks

  • Assistance with school uniforms and tuition

  • Field trips, sports, parties, and prizes

  • Access to computers, printing and the Internet

  • Workshops from local professionals such as psychologists

  • Community service projects 

  • Specialized programs in the summer

  • Connections to other community resources

 

Why an After School Program?

  • Because none exist in our town and because:

  • Children get out of school hours before their parents are home from work- leaving them alone, vulnerable and at risk

  • Negative influences in our neighborhood tempt to pull children into lives of delinquency, substance abuse, vandalism and gangs

  • Kids and teens need a safe environment to experience healthy and positive influences

  • Kids are below grade level and struggle to do their homework on their own, especially with limited financial resources

  • Most households here do not have computers or Internet access

  • Parents struggle to help their kids with their homework because the majority of them did not finish elementary school themselves or cannot read and write.
