As summer comes to a close, the staff members of Project Access are eagerly getting ready to kick-off the new school year. Project Access had a successful summer delivering quality service to our wonderful residents through our Education for Youth programs.
The Resource Centers will be launching various After School Programs including the After School Tutoring and Enrichment Programs for youths and teens. This program will allow children to achieve positive outcomes such as academic success, higher self-esteem and better study habits. The program will assist them with their homework as well as incorporate fun and quality enrichment activities. Furthermore, the program will encourage our youths and teens to be active learners both physically and academically.
Looking back at the year 2014, Project Access successfully served over 4,000 youths in school readiness, after-school and teen programs. 80% of our children have improved their reading grade, 82% of our children have improved their math grade. For our school readiness participants, 81% of the children improved in at least 5 or more areas including color recognition and counting. That's not all! 282 youth have been served with environmental education as well as hands-on technology training.
