The Kids are Coming, the Kids are coming!!!!

Next Monday (September 8th) the SonCity Kids After-school program will start for the 2008/2009 school year. Even though it has been just a little over a month since the SonCity Summer program ended it seems like a lot longer. Yes, it is hectic maybe even chaotic at times but after you get over the initial wave of energy you begin to see the immediate and significant impact our volunteers have on the lives of this kids.

We'll begin the after-school program on Monday and Wednesday of each week from 3:30 to 5:00 PM. Hopefully, by the first of October will be able to not only add Tuesday and Thursday but begin a partnership with the South Bend Community School Corporation and offer LEAP to the kids that attend Madison Primary Center. Certified and committed teachers along with our volunteers will help a lot of these kids move from 1 to 1 1/2 years behind their peers (average 3rd grade variance) to the top of their class.

If you have an 1 1/2 a week and want to make a huge impact in the life of a young boy or girl you may want to check out SonCity Kids After-school program. However, if weekdays just won't fit into your schedule you may want to check out SonCity Kids (soncitykids@gccwired.com) on the 3rd Sunday of every month or SonCity Teens which meets on the 1st Sunday afternoon of the month.
