21st Century Program

To continue its mission of ensuring all kids receive an equal opportunity for success, Youth At Heart is working closely with a coalition of partners and the Administration of Walt Whitman Elementary School and have established a 21st Century Community Learning Center After School Program to serve the students and families of Walt Whitman. The After School Program provides homework help, literacy tutoring to improve reading comprehension, a special emphasis on hands-on STEM lessons and activities and a variety of recreational and special interest opportunities. This program will continue the lessons presented during the school day and help to reinforce concepts learned while expanding on them. Students receive one-on-one guidance from certified teachers, volunteers, and parents. 

Resources are available to the entire family of students of Walt Whitman and includes literacy tutoring for adults in the family, instruction on the best methods to use to help students with their school work and additional, inclusive community-building opportunities.
