After-School Circle GreetingAfter-School Art Enrichment class

Providing a program of school and out-of school-time academic, cultural, and social support in the elementary grades is an identified strategy for increasing the likelihood that a student will graduate from high school.  With this as a long-range goal, we  have co-created a partnership of programs which offer tutoring, mentoring, enrichment, and family programs at the Myers-Wilkins School/Neighborhood sites.  Known collectively as the Myers-Wilkins Academic and Cultural Enrichment Programs, these programs work integrally with the teachers and staff of the Myers-Wilkins School to offer high-quality learning experiences for 400+ children and their families throughout the school day and out-of-school-time hours.  While family donations are always welcome, these programs are offered free of charge.

Mission

The mission of the  Myers-Wilkins Academic and Cultural Enrichment Programs  is to provide opportunities for youth and families to learn and grow in a safe and welcoming environment.  Our programs enhance academic, social, and creative skills which will empower our community through finding strength in our diversity.
