After School Program

After School Program at Edison… Making a Difference in the World, Jim Kildow, Edison Student Volunteer - I have put in over 60 hours at the afterschool program. As a result I like to consider myself fairly knowledgeable about the mechanics of the program – how it works, why it works, and what needs fixing.

After School Program at Edison… This Program has Rededicated my Commitment to Learning, By Courtney Toops, Edison Student Volunteer - The program in my opinion was effective throughout the weeks. I think the children began to have fun learning, made new friends, learned respect. Some of the students are less than eager to leave when being told they are being picked up. The age group is appropriate as well, since K-4th grade is when they probably... read more.

During that time I had some great conversations and moments with the children.

In my personal opinion I believe... read more.

Empowering After School Program… The experience has been an eye-opener, By Mac Kirk, Edison Volunteer -- Choosing the After School Program for my communications final gave me great trepidation. I understood that participating in a community service activity would be beneficial on my resume, but then there were the little people.

After School Program benefits students, teachers and parents, By Macy Godown, Edison Volunteer - The value of The After School Program is significant. Students who may not have gone home and done their homework in previous years are now getting home in the evenings with all their work already completed.

Edison students speak out about After School Program, By Bob Robinson
