 Staff

Our professional youth development staff are trained to implement this age-appropriate curriculum. Professionals identify what each member needs in order to achieve academic success. Skill-based, stand-alone lessons are designed to reinforce skills through tutoring, small-group enrichment and online stations in order to address individual learning styles.

For many of us, this is the only safe place we have to go after school.
