INICIO YMCA

YMCA START es un programa extracurricular basado en investigaciones que atiende a 125 estudiantes de bajos ingresos de las escuelas Henry Wilson y Beech Street. El plan de estudios incluye 2.5 horas diarias de tutoría académica, aptitud física, habilidades para la vida, nutrición, artes, habilidades del siglo XXI, desarrollo del carácter y trabajo en equipo. El ochenta y dos por ciento de nuestros participantes hablan un idioma que no es el inglés en casa, por lo que START ayuda a las familias que necesitan apoyo para comprender la cultura y las escuelas estadounidenses. El año pasado, 75% de los estudiantes de START fueron reconocidos como ciudadanos del mes por sus escuelas y todos los estudiantes en el programa avanzaron un mínimo de dos niveles de lectura.
