Youth After School Specials

Youth After School Specials
Grades 6-12
 from 3:15-4:45pm
2024 New sessions will be on Wednesdays!

Youth (grades 6-12) are encouraged to sign up for a variety of “life hacks” to promote special skills and interest explorations (see below). A light snack is provided. Sign up for all or just one! Please RSVP below by Sunday or earlier so we know how many students to plan for each session.

Our “Life Hacks” include:
  1. Academic support: Available EACH SESSION, led by Debbie Prasad Academics: This is designed to meet YOUR needs. In addition to specific school subjects, we can help with:
    • Review of your previous exams/quizzes to help you understand what you might have missed (so you do better in the future)
    • Building a study schedule for upcoming quizzes/exams (I know—there is SOOO much to do—and so little time to study!!)
    • Test taking strategies, test anxiety issues
    • Helping you to develop specific strategies related to issues/concerns/problems you may be experiencing related to a particular class, teacher, upcoming assignment, or test
