Our program strategy addresses the stated needs of the Physical Fitness & Wellness Program by providing positive and stimulating activities for children during their after school hours. The areas of focus will be the following:
Educational Development: With the assistance of community leaders with extensive health expertise, our program offers youth the opportunity to improve their understanding of a healthy lifestyle through education material and lectures. Participants also have the opportunity to learn from successful local leaders, as well as staff and alumni who are nearby residents. Our mentors provide constructive feedback, ongoing encouragement and supportive guidance to our young participants in the development of long-term lifestyle habits.
Homework Help: Participants will be offered additional homework assistance during the scheduled hours of operations. Children will have to show the Tutoring Mentors their daily homework assignments received from school in which the children will be given the opportunity to work one on one or collectively.
Physical Fitness: Participants are engaged in activities that will provide the chance to learn new sports/activities while gaining understanding of the impact it will have on their long-term health.
