Our Education program is designed to help underserved students to close the achievement gap. We provide tutoring and academic enrichment to over 1,000 students annually at our eleven after school centers. In this program, kindergarten through 5th grade students are guided by certified teachers in small groups for additional academic and enrichment support in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Cultural Arts, Physical Fitness and Science Projects. With project based techniques, our teachers make learning fun! And the results have been amazing.
REF hosts an eight-week summer program designed to maintain and/or increase students’ knowledge and motivation, with the understanding that children’s scholastic levels can decrease during long vacations. REF provides daily physical activities, creative arts, community service, character-building and regular field trips to venues where children can be exposed to different types of environments and experiences.
