Project Yes School Age
The program, located at the TUL Angel Family Center, has served the elementary students of Mission View Elementary School and surrounding schools for 28 years. The purpose of this program is to provide a safe and constructive after school environment for children in grades k-8 while assisting them with improving their academic skills. Children attending Project YES are provided with direct academic support, English Language Learner tutoring, (ELL) computer technology training, structured recreational activities, and arts and crafts activities. The program also provides remedial instruction in reading, writing and math. The English Language Learner component assists students who are limited English speakers to improve their English language skills. This further supports improved academic achievement and builds positive self-esteem. Moreover, support for English as a Second Language parents of students enrolled in the after school program.
For school-agers, we work on reading, writing, homework help, science skills, creative endeavors, and recreation. For school-age participants, the program offers homework, tutoring, dance or other sports activities, science and nature, art, nutrition workshops and a healthy snack.
