Project Learn

Goal
To reinforce the knowledge and skills youth learn in school by integrating fun, educational activities throughout Club programs.

Program

  • Boys & Girls Club members ages 6 to 18
     
  • Project Learn reinforces and enhances the skills and knowledge young people learn at school during the hours they spend at the Club. This comprehensive strategy is based on Dr. Reginald Clark’s research showing that students do much better academically when they spend their non-school hours engaged in fun, educational activities. Formally evaluated by Columbia University, Project Learn has been proven to boost the academic performance of Club members. The strategy consists of five components:
    • Homework help and tutoring
    • High-yield learning activities (HYLAs)
    • Parental involvement
    • School collaboration
    • Incentives
