Youth who participate in the Extended Program develop a sense of self-confidence in their ability to learn, to speak their voice and to contribute to their community. The program infuses "college messaging" throughout its curriculum to ensure both children and parents alike begin visualizing early for the college experience. We are seeking after school teachers for all of our Extended Day School sites.

After school teachers will work closely with the school’s day time classroom teachers to observe best teaching practices, lead small academic support groups in reading and math, and learn the specific grades curriculum to assist with homework and the development of lessons and units of study. In addition, all after school teachers will attend professional development conferences and workshops throughout the school year to continue their professional growth.
