After School Advantages – How Our Free After School Programs Work

Here at Communities In School of Jacksonville, we understand that often times the most difficult times for students are those away from the classroom. When students are in school, they can enjoy a safe environment where they can learn at their own pace. Being in school also allows students to be in a better routine, to get the help that they need from teachers, and an opportunity to connect with their peers in a meaningful way.

Through our free After Schools program, we aim to help students to improve their academic focus, develop social skills, learn new life skills and feel a part of the greater community. At Comminutes In School of Jacksonville, it is our goal to ensure that every student is given the opportunity to excel in life, regardless of what their personal circumstances, financial situation, or family scene at home is like.

Let’s take a closer look at exactly how our free after schools programs at Comminutes In School of Jacksonville work.

Focus On Key Areas

The objective of our after schools programs is primarily to give students more confidence and opportunities moving forward. We focus on six key areas in the program. These include academic enrichment, life skills, sports and recreation, community service, and parental involvement. We also give students an opportunity to take part in a range of different field trips, as well as offering them a chance to participate in various enrichment activities such as arts and crafts, dance, athletics, and other fun, stimulating activities conducted under the supervision of our well-trained staff.

Important Feedback

After students have participated in different activities and/or field trips, the group will come together again to discuss what they did at the activity in question, how it went, and a recap before being dismissed. This gives students an opportunity to share their experiences, learn from others in the group, and build that all-important sense of community and belonging within the group.
