when the school bell rings, millions of
children head to homes where they are alone
and unsupervised. These children often
become bored, which can lead to poor grades,
higher dropout rates, and even juvenile
is not an extension of the school day. It's
a place that combines fun and learning.
Quality comprehensive after-school programs
emphasize fun activity-based learning that
reinforces the knowledge and skills needed
for in-school success. They also promote
positive relationships among children and
adults, create an engaging environment for
children to interact with each other, and
provide opportunities for children to make
decisions and learn leadership skills.
Children, Inc. After-School programs nurture
the body, mind and spirit of every child who
content is designed to meet specific local
needs and interests; however, each of our
sites is committed to providing a
comprehensive after-school experience that
includes three components: Independent
Learning, Academics, and Enrichment.
