THINK Together at Rancho Cucamonga Middle school helps our local teens stay in a safe environment after school. The RCMS program currently has 132 teens enrolled in program, 5 program leaders and 1 site coordinator.
We support our teens with their homework and provide academic enrichment activities. Our teens also participate in fun hands on science activities and sports clubs. We spend approximately 540 hours together every school year, so in that time we have developed systems and procedures that help us facilitate a quality program. All of our teens take some part in facilitating program, teaching our teens to take responsibility now will help them become contributing members to society later. Our teen jobs include greeting parents, facilitating clubs, handing out snacks and clean up.
We build long lasting relationships with our teens and their parents, because we show them we truly care. For example Vincent, Gozie, Giselle, Samantha and Anthony are currently seniors at our local high school. These students were once in program here at RCMS but they continue to come back to show us their grades and to let us know what colleges they are planning on attending. We encourage our teens to dream and achieve the impossible.
Our passion, patience and love for these teens brings us together to form the R.C.M.S. THINK Together team/family!
