SmartY'S Out of School Program
Smart. Young. Significant.
The youth we serve are best described as Smart, Young, and Significant! The SmartY'S program is designed to serve neighborhood youth to help them reach their fullest potential.
The SmartY’S Program is a critical out-of-school time program that is designed to establish a community learning center. Youth receive daily homework help and tutoring in the core subjects of reading and math. Youth are also offered a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academics such as arts, music, science, technology, recreation, service learning projects, and drug and alcohol prevention activities. The intended result of the program is to increase academic performance of participating youth in order to keep them on the path to graduation and a successful future.
During the last school year, the SmartY’S Program served 62 youth K-8th grade. 76% of youth who attended the program at least 60 days or more demonstrated a minimum of one year's growth in reading and 78% demonstrated a minimum of one year’s growth in math.
