The after-school program not only provides homework assistance in the core subjects of math, reading, and science but also offers arts & crafts projects, workshops focusing on drug, gang, and HIV/AIDS awareness, and additional educational activities related to subjects such as history and geography.
Summer Bridge Program
This summer bridge program serves to sustain the educational growth of youth during the summer months by providing daily activities that focus on providing an entertaining approach to education through creative teaching methods and educational field trips.
The Delta Academy was created out of an urgent sense that bold action was needed to save our young females (ages 11-14) from the perils of academic failure, low self-esteem, and crippled futures. Delta Academy provides an opportunity to enrich and enhance the education that our young female teens receive in public schools across the nation. Specifically, this program focuses on math, science, and technology and opportunities to provide service in the form of leadership through service learning.
Community Service Projects
The importance of giving back to the community is taught through various community service projects. Some past activities include visiting the elderly in senior-care facilities, collecting non-perishable food items for homeless shelters, visiting hospitalized children and protecting and enhancing the environment through clean-up and planting projects.
Parent Night Activities
The Parent Night component of the Youth Risk Reduction program focuses on sustaining parental involvement which is considered one of the key elements in the success of our youth. Workshops are offered on various topics of interest such as Social Media, Understanding School Assessment Tests, Immunizations, Health Care Options, Gang Awareness etc.
Recognizing the reading levels of many of the children in lower income families fall below the average, the Book Club serves to provide a creating, fun and interesting way for students to read more. The books are chosen by the students based on their interests and reading levels. The reading is supplemented with movies, field trips, music and open discussion.
- Back to School Bash
Free school supplies are distributed. Parents are given pertinent school-related information. Voter registration is provided. An overview of program activities is presented and parents have the opportunity to register their children for the Youth Risk Reduction Program.
- Juneteenth Festival
A festival is coordinated to celebrate the important historical event of Juneteenth and to celebrate the end of the school year. We use this celebration to announce awards for our top three academic students who participate in the Youth Risk Reduction Program and to recognize the scholarship recipients of the scholarships provided by the Baltimore County Alumnae Chapter. At this festival, community supporters set up booths and disseminate information (i.e. County Library, County Health Department, Voter Registration, Woodlawn Police Department, Department of Social Services, Liberty Resource Center, Local Politicians, etc). Speakers, entertainment, face painting, vendors, refreshments and community support all play an important part in this event.
