WHAT WE DO > HIGH SCHOOL
High School activities are aimed at helping girls 11-18 face the challenges of each day in a time of maturing and transition.
PEV offers a variety of clubs and social service projects for high school girls. These activities help the girls to grow in optimism and courage as they mature and develop. Surrounded by friends and mentors, the students cultivate personal talents, leadership skills, and a spirit of service.
WEDNESDAYS (SEPTEMBER – APRIL) | 3–5 PM
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 of dropping out of school. The university women also serve as role models for the high school girls.
SMILES stands for Skill Mastery & Independent Living Essentials. It is a work program dedicated to helping students with learning and developmental disabilities learn essential workplace and social skills.
The objective of this program is to provide opportunities to practice essential skills by completing everyday tasks in order for the students to grow more confident in themselves and their own abilities. This is accomplished by having the students meet on a weekly basis, during the school year, to practice a range of practical skills that can help them lead their lives more independently and with confidence.
Skills practiced may include:
Simple food preparation
Work safety training
