Many of our students come from Spanish speaking homes where it is almost
impossible for their parents to help them complete their homework. For this
make homework assistance the number one priority. Each day the children receive
30-45 minutes of homework time. Additionally, the children get to participate
in a variety of fun and creative learning activities. The leaders and volunteers
at the Learning Center have witnessed God’s work in helping the children
progress academically since the program began. For example, throughout the
school year quite a few of the children are on the honor roll for the first
time. Other students have adopted the healthy habit of reading and now enjoy
reading. In the 2008-2009 school year, 100% of the children attending the after-school
program showed improvement in reading, math, and verbal skills. Parents are also willing
participants of the program by bringing in juice and snacks and helping to
clean the facilities.
We are thankful that God can use the Learning Center to empower the children
as well as bring encouragement to their parents and siblings. It costs One Accord $220 a month for one student to attend the program. This provides homework assistance, turtoring, art, Bible, fitness program, nutritional snacks, technology and computer classes, school supplies,and artistic and cultural enrichment activities.
consider helping to sponsor one of our children. One of our goals for the Kids
Alley Learning Center is to have one-on-one homework and tutoring assistance
for each child. This can only be done with volunteer help. We want to thank
our current volunteers for their faithful commitment to the children.
