Positive FACE is a club styled program that meets after-school on campus and is easy to access community locations. The program is free to the members and their families. Some select events may require a small contribution for the families. Enrollment is referral based by schools, social workers, or family.
The core of the program balances exposure to a wide array of academic topics, with social and emotional learning.
The program content is developed by social services, health, and education professionals. The components (social, emotional, and academic development) are covered in an edutainment format to increase student engagement and lesson retention. The schedule also provides an opportunity to provide direct tutoring assistance, which can be requested by the student, parents, or teachers. Because we have a focus on community partnerships, we also work with families to help students get enrolled extracurricular activities. The goal is to improve their odds of moving successfully into adulthood, able to gain stable employment and be a positive contributor in their community.
