Our Program

After-school efforts at the Haven celebrate the fun of learning. But its business first when the kids walk in the door. They login their name by the door, put up their outer clothes and then check-in with their assigned tutor. Students then inform the tutor of their day's homework, and work to complete as much as possible within the first hour. We generally follow with a group learning activity: reading and discussing poetry, arts or crafts, learning geography, discussing current events, and encourage the kids to direct the discussion. A snack is then provided by one of our sponsors and we try to set aside some time to play an educational game before it is time to head home. Each day the students work hard at completing their assignments with the guidance of our volunteer tutors.
