Third-grade reading levels lay a foundation for a successful educational journey. From third grade onwards, sutdents are reading to learn, and literary struggles only compound. Strong reading ability is pivotal to learning and future career goals.

Family Service parent engagement provides free reading tutoring for first, second, and third graders to help them feel confident, pass their exams, and set them up for future success.

Parents volunteer to be reading tutors, which helps them stay engaged in their children's school. The parents are trained by our team members and their school's reading specialists in literacy techniques, games, and curriculum to help students improve their reading skills. Our reading tutors, called Students for Life, help students accelerate their reading skills.

Communities In Schools programs surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each community’s unique needs, is the basis for our success.

Basic Needs: A student cannot focus in the classroom if he or she is hungry, cold, tired, or cannot see the board. Site coordinators see that students' basic needs are met each day.

Enrichment: Our Site coordinators, enroll students in after-school and summer programs, field trips, and youth conferences to help them gain experience essential to meeting college and career goals.

Academic Assistance: Our site coordinators work hard to ensure that students have the resources to progress academically. From providing students with tutors to finding and creating quiet spaces where students can study, we do whatever it takes to create an optimal learning environment for our students.

Life Skills: Through one-on-one workshops, team building, and guest speakers, we work with students to develop social-emotional learning, character education, social skills building, and conflict resolution.

Behavioral Interventions: Many of our students face and overcome difficult obstacles in their lives. However, their survival skills aren’t always effective in the classroom or the workplace. Our program teaches students positive ways to cope with anger, conflict resolution, and other strategies to keep them focused on school.

Family Engagement: Site coordinators connect families with counselors and social workers to ensure the home is a healthy, nurturing environment where students can feel safe.

Through daily exercise we promote moderate to vigorous physical activity. In addition, SA Youth promotes healthy living by advising against the use of negative behaviors such as smoking, consuming alcohol, and abusing drugs

Children who remain through dinner are also served a nutritious meal. Throughout the summer months, children are served a healthy breakfast along with a nutritious lunch. Our program provides wholesome sustenance and well-planned menu options designed by a Nutrition Coordinator at our site locations.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

SA Fit! provides our youth with hands-on, creative, and fun activities that are moderate to vigorous physical activities.

Using GeoMotion and SPARK (Sports, Play, & Active Recreation for Kids) our youth are equipped with the tools to make healthy lifestyle choices. We also offer specialized physical fitness programs in:
