year-round, out-of-school time program, serving low-income,
disproportionately at-risk students and their families, with the
following outcomes: Goal (1)

including reading literacy, homework assistance, tutorial services, and
STEAM-based programming. The aim of these activities is to help students

standards in core academic subjects, such as reading, mathematics, and
science. Specifically, this is an evidence-based, holistic, high quality
instructional program; Goal (2)

Citizenship (behavior and community involvement). This is done by
inspiring the will to learn and behave at school and in the community.

responsibility are (a) physical activities that teach social values, (b)
musical art activities (chorus, dance, and drama), and (c) health

relationships, and conduct). Specifically, opportunities are offered that
