The Focus: At risk refugee youth in elementary and middle school
The Model: Easy-access after-school education available within walking distance in regions that have a major concentration of refugee children.
The Impact: Refugee students require special attention lacking in public schools. The Amaanah After-School Program and Literate Program provide students with specialized support and attention to further the child’s development in a safe, fun and exciting environment. With a focus on English reading and comprehension, tutors also spend time with homework assistance, personal development, recreational activities, and creative workshops. The After-School Program are offered during weekdays for up to 2 hours each day, while the Literate Program runs concurrently on Saturdays with a focus on enhanced reading skills. Students are tested several times a semester and performance is closely monitored.
