Academics, Education, and Accountability ~ A PRIORITY.
Leadership, Youth Development, Social Skills,
and Cultural Responsibility ~ ESSENTIAL.
We take the stand to develop a PARTNERSHIP WITH PARENTS assisting youth and young
adults with opportunities to grow and develop social awareness and leadership skills.
Our After-School Enrichment Program gives parents, who are still working when their
children are released from school, a great EDUCATIONAL choice for their children to be
involved in, while offering cultural, technological, recreational, and social activities.
Some activities are planned and structured, but there is also time for free choice
and self-expression. We have many activities to offer and are constantly
adding areas of interests to educate, motivate, and challenge minds.
In addition to the After-School Enrichment Program, we also coordinate
other youth-related events during the weekday and on weekends.
