Students who participate in after-school programs can reap a host of positive benefits academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. By partnering with schools and recreation programs in the Greater Rochester area, EarthWorks Institute is able to provide enriching after-school programs.
Rooted in experiential learning, these after-school programs not only break up a busy day of studying but also offer a positive impact that extends into communities, by teaching students to build bonds with nature and understand its connection to their community. By observing the pillars of an effective after-school program, EarthWorks Institute offers:
– Access to and sustained participation in the program
– Quality programming and staffing
– Strong partnerships between programs and schools, families, and community institutions
After-school topics cover STEM learning, problem-solving, communication skills and more. Thanks to our exceptional Experiential Learning Guides, we’re able to customize learning for specific age groups and give students the confidence to explore the outdoors in a safe and meaningful way.
