A free after-school program for
children in Title I schools
Our primary focus is working with Title I schools, because they have large concentrations of low-income students. Their students are more likely to face life situations and socioeconomic disadvantages that negatively impact their physical health, motor skills, and ability to concentrate. They often feel alienated from society, suffer greater insecurities, experience depression, and are more likely to have behavioral issues. 30% of children raised in poverty do not finish high school.
