Academic Enrichment Program – After School for Grades K-12
**Covid Update** We are thrilled to continue to offer the Academic Enrichment Program (AEP) to our neighborhood. What was already a critical service to neighborhood youth is now many times that as we work to slow the very real Corona slide in learning! Please know we have new procedures and equipment in place to help make our buildings and programs a safe place to heal, love, and learn.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7
Neighborhood moms and dads have a great option for after-school care in our Academic Enrichment Program (AEP). It’s free, diverse, convenient, and proven to keep kids on track for progressing to the next grade level. AEP provides opportunities to get homework done and to connect to self, neighbors, and the God of the Bible.
Volunteers make an impact by coming alongside these students as tutors while expanding their own life experiences. And, if you are a high school or college student, you can do good while earning volunteer hours.

Academic Enrichment Program – Summer-Bridge Camp for Grades Pre-K-12
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12
Summer-Bridge Camp comes alongside neighborhood parents by offering a blend of academics and extracurricular activities through eight weeks of summer. During the summer students can narrow any achievement gaps or just get ahead because they do not have the daily requirements of homework. To this mix add awsome classroom leaders and volunteers, daily Bible enrichments, and healthy eating. By August sudents are prepared for the school year.
The major funder for Summer-Bridge Camp is the George Jenkins Foundation. Many individuals and service organizations also fund aspects of the camp.
