BENEFITING: Mentors of Minorities in Education, Inc.
The After School Program at M.O.M.I.E’s TLC places an intentional focus on early childhood and school age development and incorporates age-appropriate, holistic Program components that are specifically designed to build confidence, strengthen core academic areas, and inspire activism.
The After School Program operates everyday from 3 pm to 6 pm and currently engages 25-30 children and youth, ages 5 to 12. The Program is based in the Ward 4 neighborhood of Washington, DC.
At the core of M.O.M.I.E’s After School Program is the Great Persons Series. The Great Persons Series uses the humanities and arts to introduce our children to great global leaders - freedom fighters, artists, writers, performers, athletes, economists, inventors, scientists, politicians, and healers - both present and past. The Series offers lessons not often addressed in the school environment and seeks to “bring history to life” by implementing activities that encourage discussion/debate, hands-on engagement, and the creative arts.
