We provide structured homework help, tutoring, programs to boost reading skills and STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education. We help them achieve the drive to do their best in school and improve their academic performance.
We also teach community skills, leadership skills, and decision-making. We set up a student government for kids to have a voice in our decisions within the program. They participate in many extracurricular activities such as dance, recreational sports, and computer skills.
Most importantly, they receive the Winning in Life curriculum, which teaches them the 14 principles that helped make Jackie Joyner-Kersee become one of the best female athletes of all time. Kids in the After School Program are exposed to these principles each day, and build a community with other kids who are working toward the same goals.
Kids receive a healthy snack when they arrive, and a nutritious dinner before they go home. We provide transportation from school and to their homes in the evening.
