Before and After School

Organization: Barbara Chambers Children's Center

Our Before and After School Program offers a rigorous academic, cultural, and developmental program. Credentialed bilingual teachers oversee homework completion and provide tutoring in reading, writing, math, science, and computer based learning. Our long term goal lies in demonstrating that Latino students can be academically successful regardless of language proficiency, income level, origin, background, or immigration status. Further, the primary objective of our Before and After program is to improve academic and social-emotional skills, and multi-cultural awareness of the students between 5 and 12 years old.

The Before and After School Program at BCCC is staffed by individuals from a host of different cultures, with whom children can identify. Participants are encouraged to communicate in whichever language they feel most comfortable speaking, and staff is able to accommodate all levels of language learners. Latino enrollment in DCPS has more than doubled in the last decade. More importantly, it is the need for auxiliary services to reflect this population to ensure their success.
