Over the last decade, we have seen a significant rise in the number and importance of after-school programs, or “Homework Clubs,” for elementary and middle-school aged children. These programs
fill the critical hours between when children and youth finish school, and the end of their parents’ work day. They rest on three pillars which provide them with objective and direction, and are
measures by which we can evaluate their success. The pillars are:
- Skill development;
- Safe and supported spaces; and,
- Positive relationships.
*For supervisors or managers responsible for the training of frontline critical hours workers and looking for resources to assist in facilitation of trainings, we have developed a accessible
learning module around the 3 pillars featuring videos and a quizzing component, and is available entirely online. If you would like more info, download the Expression of Interest or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full
