A successful year for the Club!
We received this update from Cristian, who leads the volunteer effort of the After-School Club program:
“As the program coordinator, I am proud to call this school year a huge success. With the help of volunteers and the teacher at the El Aulo School, we have accomplished the goal of instilling and helping reinforce literature and language, math, and storybook hours. We have worked hand in hand with the volunteers and the teachers to come together and help the students with their struggles academically.
We utilized a lot of learning and teaching strategies to do this work with the help of the UT Global Health group led by Dr. Felkner, a professor in the program. These activities have led the students to become more motivated to learn, write, and read. It has helped the students enrich their vocabulary and their writing skills.
We have seen the change in the students; they are more sociable, they participate, and are more sure of themselves. They also enjoy the benefits of extracurricular activities, education, and a hot lunch, which has increased school attendance.”
We are excited to expand this program into new community schools in 2024.
Thank you for your support of the afterschool program in the Aulo school!
