Enrichment
Through these programs youth develop the self confidence, motivation, and interpersonal skills that prepare them to be actively engaged in the life of the community. Our Enrichment Programs address the following outcomes:
Expressive Arts:

In an atmosphere of nonjudgmental and creative play, children can explore their creativity through rhythm, sound, music, & movement.

Great Science:

Broadens and sustains children's interest & persistence in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Through inquiry-based experiments performed in small groups, children gain confidence to pursue their interest and develop science skills.

Kids on the Block:

Life size puppets teach children about disabilities and how to appreciate differences. Facilitators interact with the children and help them understand what it means to be disabled, and become more sensitive to other children.

Monart:

Teaches individuals to perceive the visual world in terms of five basic elements of shape. Just as a musician learns notes and scales in order to play an instrument, Monart students learn the skills necessary to translate their perception onto paper.

THRIVE:

An exploratory program used to help young people better understand their sparks/passions and develop goals and strategies to pursue those interests in the short- and long-term.

LifeSkills:

A program designed to teach children various skills necessary for healthy development. LifeSkills training provides children & youth with the knowledge and skills to be financially literate, say no to tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs, manage anxiety/anger, communicate effectively, handle social situations, and resist peer pressure.

Power Up:

Health fitness and self-esteem program designed for girls. Girls set personal goals in a fun, safe, and supportive girls-only environment.
