After-School Enrichment: Extending Learning Time
Sanger, Carla
Leadership, v40 n5 p36-38 May-Jun 2011
After-school programs can help show students how academics are relevant to their personal interests, and serve as training grounds for future teachers. This article features LA's BEST After School Enrichment Program whose mission is to provide a safe and supervised after school education, enrichment, and recreation program for children ages 5 to 12 in the City of Los Angeles. Participation in LA's BEST has profound implications for the life choices of not only the students, but also the staff who work with them. Energy, enthusiasm, creativity, and the ability to relate to children are the greatest assets for staff members. If a program can capitalize on those qualities, the results are profound for adults and children alike.
