The After School Youth Enrichment Program (AYEP) believes in the power of education to radically change young people’s lives.
AYEP is a local, community-based year-round expanded learning program. Our mission is to empower young people to reach their full potential as learners and leaders who ignite transformation in their families, communities and world. Driven by the belief that every minute of every day provides an opportunity for students to learn, we convert the significant time that students spend away from school—that is, evenings, weekends, vacations, and summer break—into valuable learning opportunities.
We recognize that many students face obstacles to academic success. We are committed to delivering a pipeline of support for students, critical to keep young students from falling behind and falling through the cracks.
All of our programs are designed to help young students gain skills critical to college readiness and lifelong success – literacy, numeracy, problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, persistence toward excellence and active citizenship – as well as mastery of subject-area knowledge.
Our summer and after school programs increase access to learning supports and enrichment opportunities, boost student achievement, strengthen kids social skills and self-esteem, and help them do better in school. Both sessions, school-year and summer, complement and expand upon what the students are learning in their regular schools, with a particular emphasis on literacy skill-building.
