Individual Attention and Support Making a Difference
Each week from Monday through Thursday children enthusiastically flood into The Foundry Center for our Gems after-school program. The goal of Gems is to provide a caring and supportive atmosphere for children to flourish educationally, socially, physically and spiritually. They begin the afternoon with physical activity before moving on to homework. Volunteers give each student individual attention in completing their work and help them develop strong reading skills. We teach children the importance of successfully completing their homework not only to improve performance in school, but to teach them responsibility in daily life. Reading is the number one skill used every day. We help students develop strong reading skills and grow their confidence.
