AFTER-SCHOOL ENRICHMENT PROGRAM
After School Programs That Count!
August 10, 2016 – May 25, 2017
In today’s fast-paced learning environments, after school cannot be an afterthought! Girls Inc girls build their academic success and develop the skills they’ll need to become strong and empowered adults. They develop the tools to build—and the vision to plan their very best futures!!
Each day, girls rotate through exciting programs and activities that focus on:
Academic Enrichment and Support… to expand on and support school-based learning and engagement.
Healthy Living Guidance… to provide the knowledge, skills and encouragement to develop and sustain a healthy lifestyle.
Life Skills Instruction… to build the learning, skills and behaviors that enable girls to function independently and live a productive and fulfilling life.
You can find girls curled up with a good book, busy with STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) experiments, planting organic veggies, rehearsing for a play, engaged in our computer labs, creating artistic masterpieces, and so much more!
We also provide additional tutoring and homework help at no extra cost.
The Girls Inc After-School Enrichment Program complements school day learning, and gives girls extra hours of structured learning every week! Our trained staff ensures that our programs support your daughter’s daily learning to maximize success!
Our Kids Café, sponsored by Publix Super Markets Charities, serves a full dinner every afternoon. Our menus meet FDA and Health Department standards for nutrition.
In addition to tutoring and homework help, the program includes:
