Why After School Programming?

Studies show that students who participate in after-school programs:

  • show gains in social and emotional competencies;

  • are less likely to use drugs, alcohol and have conduct problems;

  • show gains in developing positive work habits;

  • improve social skills with peers; 

  • have an improved self-perception and attitudes towards school, teachers, classmates and adults;

  • feel safe to try new things resulting in finding their own voice and gaining confidence;

  • acquire life skills that they normally miss out on during the school day



Program Overview

In small group settings with active mentor engagement, we emphasize accepting, listening to, and seeking to understand the unique perspective of each individual, while building and maintaining a culture of respect, individuality and self-agency. 

We provide a transformative and innovative program in a collaborative environment that engages students in project-based business and entrepreneurship activities that results in the execution of student-led community projects and/or business ventures. 

Leadership Development

"We would like to let you know that your instruction is outstanding. Breanna consistently discussed her notes with me and we found it to be very solid. She now has the foundation and mentality of a leader with integrity...Your program gave them depth of understanding, hands on experience, and the privilege of seeing it in action...Please continue to do this. Many of these kids would have settled in life but this program has opened their eyes to so much more." Brandon and Bianca McIver
