Tutor & Mentor Our Children For A Brighter Future!

by Village Community Resource Center

Summary

Children who come from troubled neighborhoods and with limited access to resources often pay the price of being unable to do well in school. Village Community Resource Center's - After School Academy Program puts a stop to that by providing a safe and nurturing environment where children can receive assistance on their homework while also offering them exciting opportunities to learn life skills that will allow them to become independent and give them a chance for a brighter future!

Challenge

Nearly a third of youth from low-income families will fail to earn high school diplomas according to the ASPE which advices the US Department of Health & Human Services in a 2009 report. A community that is composed of households with lower incomes often will encounter higher levels of crime. This worsens when no direction exists for our youth to better themselves and seek a brighter future. As a result, conditions worsen for the community which becomes a more difficult burden on society.

Solution

Providing a safe haven for our children during the hours directly afters school will ensure they stay out of trouble. What makes our project much more critical is that our children are being provided with tutor and mentor support that will allow them to understand and complete their homework on time. In addition, specific evaluations are done to determine which areas of interest our children need further improvement upon on their academics which also follow state standards.

Long-Term Impact

If a child can avoid the pitfalls of a troubled society and focus on their academics, then they have a potential of doing better in school. Being able to complete their homework and improve their academics will instill a sense of confidence in our children which may have the single greatest influencing factor in their future success. The end results are capable future citizens that have overcome odds and will in turn return the favor by serving society as competent and responsible individuals.
