Description

Strength for the Journey DR, a legal non-profit in the United Sttes, provides assistance to learning centers that offer after school and Saturday enrichment classes for children ages 7 - 12. Children take responsibility to self-select classes and create their own schedules. When children do not have classes, they are welcome to come, belong, and play with a variety of educational toys always available.

Currently, Strength for the Journey DR provides assistance to the Jamao learning center to offer a menu of 16 classes during after-school hours, Saturdays, or mornings in summer months. All classes, materials, instruments, and uniforms are provided free. Learning center teachers are a mix of paid locals and volunteers.

Our staff is a combination of paid local teachers and volunteers. Although the non-profit is not religious-based, our learning center is located in the local Catholic Church and we work together as partners to improve the lives and education of children, youth, and families in Jamao.
