YoFes After School Program
Youth Builders (YB) After School and Summer Program- provides intensive academic support and cultural enrichment, including music education, for 70 youth during the school year. Most immigrant parents work multiple jobs and often lack the educational resources to support their children in school. Our after-school program helps to bridge this gap. Beyond the many benefits our students gain from taking part in music rehearsals, we provide the missing educational support, critical to successfully find their place in the world.
From honing literacy skills, toiling to improve grades, to offering a pathway to leadership and employment, our after- school classroom is a stimulating place of enrichment and support unlike any other. In addition to sharpening their academic skills, the kids learn important lessons in self-care through nutrition, health and cultural studies.
