The mission of the Bennie E Goodwin After School Academic Program is to prepare multicultural youth for life experiences throught educaiton programs, referral services and partnerships with other community based organizations.
In March of 1995, a local retired school administrator, Dr. Mable Young began a free program to help students whose academic performance indicated that they could benefit from assistance. Faith Temple Ministries in Aurora provided the facilities and donated the utilities.
In June of 1995, a group of educators, business and community leaders concurred with Dr. Young that there was a criticial need for an effecitve, free, permanent academic assistance program designed to assist youth who were at risk of failing elementary school because of their inability to read and calculate. Thus, a new non-profit oganization, the Bennie E. Goodwin Education Foundation was created. The foundation was establish in honor of the program director's father, the late Reverend Bennie E. Goodwin, a jurisdictional bishop.
After approzimately two year, the focus of the program was changed from tutorial to skill building in the area of reading and mathematics.
Due to the increased cost of implementing the Skill Building Progarm, the Program could not longer be free; therefore, parents were requested to invest a modest sum toward the education of their children.
Sinice its inception in 1995, the After School Academic Program (ASAP) has been affecting positive changes in the academic performacne and overall learning readiness of the youth it serves.
