After-School Programs Offer More Learning and Support
After-school programs provide students with a safe environment where they can receive nurturing support and consistency from people they trust.
This after-school program provides extra support for students who are English-Language Learners or students who would go home to empty homes because their parents work later into the evening. Volunteers provide help so scholars can complete their homework.
