After School Programs, Inc. Announces New Federal Grants for 11 Florida Schools

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 5, 2012

After School Programs, Inc. Announces New Federal Grants for 11 Florida Schools

After School Programs, Inc. is proud to announce new 21st Century Community Learning Center Grants for 11 Schools in 4 Florida Counties. The federally funded 21st Century community Learning Center Grants will enable ASP to provide free after school programs for more than 1100 students

About the Program

The ASP Grant Programs engage students in an enjoyable and productive after school environment. They are designed in partnership with each local community and customized to meet the specific needs of the community school and parents. Programs are designed to:

  • Help students improve their academic performance
  • Enrich student’s education through enrichment activities and programs
  • Incorporate services that enhance family literary development and parental involvement

Project-Based Learning

The educational design of the program is known as “project-based learning”, an approach to teaching in which students are actively engaged in a theme-based project.

Children work both with teams and independently as they explore projects with environmental themes such as “Recyclobots”, “Space Explorers”, and “Earth Warriors”. As children investigate these general themes, they develop enhanced specific cross-curricular skills in the areas of reading, writing, math, science, technology and art.

In the process of completing their projects, children improve their organizational and research skills, develop better communication with their peers and adults, and participate in service learning projects that enhance their community awareness. Each month, the parents of these students meet to learn how to support their children in the program at home.
