Youth Achievers Program
Youth Achievers is a series of afterschool activities where children ages 6 to 12 can have a place to play, exercise and learn new skills—things that help children thrive and grow in mind and body.
Activities and programs delivered under Youth Achievers are:
Robotics: This hands-on program is inclusive, engaging, and boosts participation of all children involved. Participating in science projects helps develop children’s resourcefulness, particularly their skills at goal-setting, planning, and problem-solving. It also nurtures intellectual curiosity, helping children acquire new ways of asking questions and finding answers within their peer group. The program is delivered in partnership with youth leaders and mentors from THEORY6 Robotics Team.
- Easy Peasy Coding: is designed to challenge children to create their own mazes, games, and art through coding, and ultimately to inspire them to think about what cool gadgets and solutions they can build themselves. Life skills taught within this program include logical, critical and creative thinking, communication and teamwork, developmental and organizational skills and unlimited creative freedom
- Homework Club: Regular weekly sessions that aim to improve children’s learning skills and obtain help and understanding of difficult work that transpires from joining a new educational system. During the sessions, we focus on enhancing children’s acquisition of literacy. Along with this, we provide help with the school curricula in different subjects engaging high school students as volunteers.
- Life Skills Workshops: designed around setting up goals, planning for the future, appreciating diversity, educational pathways, dealing with bullying, and building a social network
Eligibility criteria: Youth ages 6-12 years
