WRAP/YMCA Expanded Learning Program Locations - After School Education & Safety (ASES) - Home

Program Description

Homework Assistance

Monday-Thursday students receive 1 hour of homework assistance. If students have no homework or finish early, the Program Leader provides various activities to supplement homework (Independent Reading Time- students read self-selected books from our leveled-library, academic worksheets, academic centers, and/or student directed projects).

Academic Enrichment

Throughout the week, students work on academic enrichment activities focusing on S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics), Literacy, Social Science, and many more academic content areas. An academic enrichment is either designated for a group or the program leader will have a choice in determining the needs and areas of interest of the students.

Project Based Learning (PBL)

Project Based Learning is an inquiry-based model of learning where students work on a project for an extended period of time. All PBL learning experiences follow the Buck Institute for Education’s PBL model and includes: an entry event, significant content (common core standards), 21st century competency development (4 Cs, information / media / technology skills, life / career skills, etc.), in depth inquiry, a project challenge (in response to an issue, challenge, investigation, or problem), need to know, voice/choice, individual and group deliverables, critique revision and reflection, and a culminating event with a public audience. Learning experiences are designed in alignment with the Learning In After School Principles of Learning (learning that is active, collaborative, meaningful, promotes skill mastery, and expands horizons) and youth development.

Academic Support

Students receive additional support with academics based on student needs.

College Readiness

The College Readiness curriculum focuses on exposure and access to higher learning. Students are exposed to higher learning through College Readiness lessons that are grade level appropriate (K-8), they are afforded the opportunity to learn about colleges and universities throughout the nation, and students are provided with an opportunity to hear about college experiences shared via first hand accounts from college speakers. To further expose students to higher learning, each school site group is named after a college/university and have the possibility of participating in field trips to local college campuses.

Y-Clubs/Youth Council

Students participate in a club for 1 hour each Friday. Clubs are designed around the Program Leader’s talents/hobbies (skills/interest they want to share with the students). Students may choose/join any club they are interested in (students may join a group other than their regular group). In addition to clubs, a selected amount of students participate in Youth Council where they make decisions and create program systems that best suit the needs of the peers and program, while also developing leadership skills.

Physical Education

Each day, students engage in 45 minutes of structured Physical Education activities.

Nutrition

Each day students receive a healthy snack provided by Nutrition Services.

Common Core:

The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent and clear understanding of what students are expected to learn in each grade level. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, and to reflect the knowledge and skills that our youth need for success in college and future careers. Our Program Leaders are utilizing Common Core State Standards when designing grade level lessons.
