What if someone created an after-school program that takes an active approach to meeting the social and emotional needs of the students?
Using a trauma informed lens, led by the Director of Education at Bester Community of Hope, we are creating a three-tiered approach that aims to build character, improve academic abilities and live a healthy lifestyle at
Bester Elementary School and E. Russell Hicks Middle School.
We will use an evidence based SEL curriculum, integration of competencies in daily activities, and ongoing staff development to create and implement a trauma responsive after-school program.
We understand that meeting student’s needs is not a one size fits all endeavor. We are creating various unique opportunities for students to learn and grow based on their individual interest. Students will be involved in project-based learning that teaches real life skills. We will also have a service-learning component that helps students explore ways to improve their school and give back to their community. We believe the best learning is done without realizing it’s taking place!
Some examples of enrichment activities are: Photography, Videography, STEM, Technology, Jewelry Making, homemade Soap making, T-shirt and Accessory Creation, Sewing, Origami, Keyboard and Guitar Lessons, Fitness, Yoga, Nutrition and Team Sports.
Does this spark your interest? Are you excited about the opportunity to teach in a way that integrates academics, social-emotional and project-based learning and enrichment activities?
