Fortunate Kids After School Program: Parterned with Detroit Public Schools and The Detroit Public Library , This much needed project aids in the lack of after-school care by providing a nutritious meal, a safe place to stay, and 20 minutes of essential daily reading. Our program includes "Help with Homework" where our volunteers sit down with each child to make sure homework is done, and to provide extra tutoring when needed. Children up to 18 can greatly benefit from this program and don't fall behind in school. They will appreciate the safety, and uplifting support they receive by coming here directly after school. The learning atmosphere is more conducive when there are caring adults present and their bellies are full. Parents feel less stress knowing their children are safe and not getting into trouble while they are at work. Volunteers will dedicate 4 hours per tutoring session, Monday -Saturday on their designated days. Students will receive a snack at the beginning of sessions and end with a meal. more than 28 million parents work during after school hours, let's play our part by volunteering some of our time to these students. We look forward to working with you.
