Leisure Services Afterschool Program takes a whole student approach with a focus on improving academic performance, social well-being, health and fitness. We provide a variety of enrichment activities each week that stimulate the students mind and creativity, improve physical fitness, and provide unique experiences they may not otherwise encounter.
Leisure service partners with UGA mentor groups What Ever It Takes & UGA Honors Program to provide every student the help they need to not only complete their homework but also make sure they understand the lesson. To ensure students are getting the academic support they require we keep our mentor to student ratio at no more than 3 to 1. For those students that have little to no homework, we provide additional worksheets that coincide with their school lessons or we have them choose a book from our library to read.
Sample Enrichment/Structured Activities:
Physical Education (P.E.) Games
Entomology (study of insects)
Therapy Dogs & other animal encounters
Arts & Crafts
Leadership & Life Skill Development
and so much more!
