AfterSchool Drop-In Program

AfterSchool Program 2020-Now Online!

The Trenton Public Schools have made the decision to begin the school year virtually due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. We know EVERYONE was hoping it would be “back to school” like we have always done, it looks like we all have to adjust our expectations…again!

Las Escuelas Públicas de Trenton han tomado la decisión de comenzar el año escolar virtualmente debido a la pandemia de Covid-19. Sabemos que TODOS tenían la esperanza de que “volviera a la escuela” como siempre lo hemos hecho, parece que todos tenemos que ajustar nuestras expectativas … ¡de nuevo!

At UPT, we have spent the spring and summer learning how to provide a better online experience for the kids and teens. We are confident we can continue to provide good academic support online. It is important for our students to receive all the encouragement and access to academic help at this time. Education is the foundation to a child’s future, and, although Covid-19 has “rocked” the process, learning online is something that can be done.

En UPT, hemos pasado la primavera y el verano aprendiendo cómo hacer una mejor experiencia por internet para niños y adolescentes. Estamos seguros de que podemos seguir brindando un buen apoyo académico en línea. Es importante que nuestros estudiantes reciban todo el estímulo y acceso a la ayuda académica en este momento. La educación es la base del futuro de un niño y, aunque Covid-19 ha “sacudido” el proceso, aprender en línea es algo que se puede hacer.

Our AfterSchool Program begins on September 17, 2020. We do know the youth get weary of being online all the time (who knew they would get tired of being on the computer?!) so we have built in a break for the children to relax and fuel up before joining us. To begin, we will only be offering academic support, but we plan on adding enrichment opportunities to the students in late September.

Nuestro programa extracurricular comienza el 17 de septiembre de 2020. Sabemos que los jóvenes se cansan de estar usando la computadora todo el tiempo (¡¿quién sabía que se cansarían de estar en la computadora?!), Así que hemos creado un tiempo de descanso para que los niños se relajen. y recargue energías antes de unirse a nosotros. Para comenzar, solo ofreceremos apoyo académico, pero planeamos agregar oportunidades de enriquecimiento a los estudiantes a fines de septiembre.

You can register online HERE. In addition, our Site Directors, Ms. Gilmer and Ms. Hawthorne will be reaching out to families to check in prior to the start of school.

Become A Volunteer


Donate

Your tax-deductible 501c donation goes a long way. The children have learned about everything from cooking to Irish dancing, from to bucket drumming to soccer, and so much more. The need is great, and our goal is to inspire more bright smiles by expanding our program in the coming years to cover all four wards of Trenton.
