WEEKdays (Women Encouraging Excellence in Kids) is an after school tutorial program for girls eager to succeed.
The program runs yearly from September to April. Our tutors are young women recruited from local universities and colleges.
They are trained to tutor and provide homework support for inner-city high school girls in jeopardy of not reaching graduation or dropping out of school.
The university women also serve as role models for high school girls.
SMILES stands for Skill Mastery & Independent Living Essentials.
The objective of this program is to provide opportunities to practice essential skills by completing everyday tasks in order to
to grow more confident in oneself & one's own abilities.
Skills practiced may include:
Simple food preparation
Work safety training
