Before & After School

A Success Program That Makes a Difference

At the JRC Before & After school program for elementary students we work to ensure that children are engaged in a balanced and paralleled school curriculum after school, during summer and on school holidays, in a safe and high quality environment.  We provide opportunities for school age children that help them maintain and/or improve academic performance and gain developmental assets. 

We are open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. during the school year, for holiday school closings, and over the summer months.  Transportation between school and the JRC Learning Center may be available.

We work with parents, school teachers, principals, and students to ensure that learning doesn't end when the school day or the school year ends.  

The more assets young people have, the more likely they are to:

  • Succeed in school by getting mostly A's
  • Pay attention to healthy nutrition and exercise
  • Avoid doing dangerous things
  • Save money instead of spending it right away
  • Be a leader....not a follower
  • Help friends or neighbors
  • Value getting to know people of many racial/ethnic groups 
  • Refuse to give up when things get difficult

There are eight asset categories included in the Search Institute's approach: 

Support, Empowerment, Boundaries & Expectations, Constructive Use of Time, Commitment to Learning, Positive Values, Social Competencies, and Positive Identity.   

According to the Search Institute, surveys of 6th to 12th grade youth consistently show that the more assets young people experience, the more likely they are to make positive choices and avoid high-risk behaviors. At JRC we begin to incorporate asset development in our preschool classrooms and continue in earnest once children start school.
