Afterschool Programming

Afterschool programs can be so much more than "homework help". In as little as one hour a week, a healthy academic mentoring relationship can have a long-lasting positive impact on the life of a child. Many churches and nonprofit organizations are looking for ways to meaningfully connect with the schools and families in their community – especially the most vulnerable – and running an afterschool program is a great "door opener". The resources provided by World Vision are designed to equip afterschool program leaders and tutors with the skills and tools needed to run an effective and sustainable program.
