Our Learning Centers provide a safe place after school for elementary-aged children living in Pisgah View Apartments and Woodridge Apartments, a public housing and Section 8 development, respectively. This free structured afterschool program serves 40 elementary students Monday through Thursday throughout the school year. Students receive homework help, enrichment activities, healthy snacks, and support with their individualized goals.
Eblen Homework Club and Working Warriors
Eblen Homework Club meets every Tuesday after school at Eblen Intermediate School. Homework Club is comprised of a small group of students who receive help with homework and enrichment activities from our Student Support Specialist and volunteers.
On Thursdays, these students gather together after school for the purpose of learning about job skills and career opportunities. The Working Warriors have the opportunity to hear from community members with interesting careers and attend field trips to area colleges and businesses. Research has shown the importance of introducing students to college and career at an early age. We hope to provide these opportunities and inspire our students to succeed in life.
During the summer, we work to provide our rising third through sixth grade students in the Deaverview, Woodridge, and Pisgah View communities with as many unique experiences as possible. From swimming to fishing and overnight camping, our 6 week summer camp is packed with fun for the students in the communities we serve.
