Many of the toughest challenges for students occur after the school bell rings. These challenges can range from academic hurdles to the more basic need of finding a nourishing meal. At our afterschool learning program in Jacksonville, FL, we understand that this critical time of day calls for a safe and nurturing environment.
Our commitment to providing the best afterschool programs for kids stems from recognizing that elementary and middle school students have unique needs. By offering a comprehensive and free afterschool program that addresses these needs head-on, we can extend a haven where young minds can thrive.
Under the careful supervision of our dedicated teachers, students have the opportunity to complete their homework assignments, ensuring that they stay on track with their studies. Our afterschool learning programs go beyond academics. It's a place where kids can forge meaningful connections with their peers through engaging activities like sports, symphony, robotics, and more.
Exciting Enrichment Activities
Our Afterschool Program focuses on six core areas – academic enrichment, sports and recreation, life skills, cultural enrichment, parental involvement, and community service.
After a long day at school, we know that a healthy snack is essential. Our students enjoy nutritious snacks before diving into their academic assignments and participating in enrichment activities such as cheerleading, dance, arts and crafts, and athletics – every interest is nurtured by our highly qualified afterschool staff members.
Robotics Program in Partnership with STEM2Hub
All of our afterschool sites offer unique opportunities, such as our robotics program developed in partnership with STEM2Hub. This program allows students to immerse themselves in hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) learning as they build and program robots, fostering teamwork and critical thinking.
After students complete these activities, they gather together to enjoy a nutritious dinner and are then dismissed and picked up by parents or approved guardians.
Support from the Kids Hope Alliance
Our kids' afterschool programs are made possible through the generous support and oversight of the Kids Hope Alliance. Their commitment to the well-being and development of our young learners is invaluable. Together, we ensure that every child's unique needs are met, setting them on a path to a brighter future.
