OAKS FAMILY CARE CENTER INC
May 3, 2011
I was requested to be a volunteer to head up a after school program for children ages 5 to 11. This program is held until school is completed. The program, Club Connections, helps the children with schoolwork, develope their minds by doing creative activities and learning to be responsible young adults. Myself and other volunteers will recognize problems in behavior or home issues that could surface while at Club Connections, so we assist the children in dealing with their issues. I also direct the Summer Foods Program, which is a free lunch program, run two times a week, during summer break. During this program, the children receive a free lunch if qualified, have activities and keep the school work fresh in their minds.

Ways to make it better...

I would not make changes. The organization has the flavor of going in the right direction. IN THE INTEREST OF THE CHILDREN.
Volunteer & I have seen positive results with childrens grades improving from last year to this year.
