The Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County provide wrap-around services for our over 1,000 members in all areas of life: academic, social, emotional, and health. This project supports our commitment to academic achievement by providing members with homework assistance, reading remediation, and math engagement. Our young learners love to use the computers to learn and we have been integrating new programs to assist this.
For math, members utilize a web-based program called Khan Academy. Khan offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. We tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. By incorporating Khan Academy we guide learners from kindergarten to calculus using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps.
In addition, we recently partnered with Everfi. EVERFI's digital curricula empower our staff teams to bring critical skills education into their lessons. The interactive, game-based lessons help prepare students for success in the real world. Our members are loving this new component of learning and we love we can assess progress effectively through pre- and post-tests as well as offline activities to support their learning.
Thank you for continuing to support our young members. Your donations help us maintain a high level of programs in all areas, especially academics.
