Afterschool youth learning about STEM projects

Johnathan is from a low-income family of 4. He is in the first grade and loves

Spiderman. Before coming to AYC, Johnathan had a hard time following.

appropriate classroom behavior. He had trouble staying in his seat and being

respectful towards others. He had trouble making friends and was a little shy.

Although his math abilities were at the appropriate grade level, he

struggled with spelling.

AYC’s Education Enrichment Services department provides students with

academic and social-emotional learning opportunities. We host weekly workshops.

to help the youth in our community deal with emotions and social interactions. As

we worked with Johnathan; we have seen his behavior improve. He can recognize.

when he does something wrong and does a good job of holding himself

accountable for his actions. He has made friends at AYC and is much more

comfortable asking questions and making jokes. Through various activities,

we have seen his improvement in spelling. We are excited to watch him grow as

a student and as an individual.
