The program is envisioned as a year round project. To achieve our objectives we have divided the scheduled activities into two calendar sessions, January to June and July to December. The activities scheduled for Jan.-Jun and Sept.-Dec. are directly geared toward academic enhancement. We have included six hours per week of tutoring during the school year. The participants are tutored by volunteer students from the local universities. We’ve been fortunate to use over 150 college volunteers over the last 15 years. Several volunteer professionals work with the youths on a permanent Recreation, community awareness, and health consciousness are major componenets of our program.
