About the Program

Program Statements
The purpose of the ASAP is to provide a safe, educational, structured, fun after school program to students in elementary school. ASAP is open to any student attending the school where the program is conducted. Give Every Child A Chance received a federal grant that requires us to offer three components: Homework
Assistance/Support; Enrichment Activities and Recreation/Physical Education. Program components can vary in length depending upon the site.  

Academic Assistance
The academic component is designed to assist the student with their daily homework assignments and provide them with an academic alternative once they have completed their schoolwork. Students work in a group setting with staff (in some
cases volunteers) offering guidance when requested. ASAP staff also communicate with teachers to provide additional support for our students’ academic needs. (The ASAP academic component is not part of the GECAC TEACH mentor tutor
program.) 

Enrichment Activities

The goal of the enrichment component is for ASAP staff to provide a variety of fun learning opportunities for students. Our staff work hand in hand with the school personnel to provide enrichment activities that extend the regular school day and align with the Common Core and the Quality Standards for After School Learning. Activities may include Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (S.T.E.A.M) projects, Health Education, Project Based Learning, Character Building, Art, Clubs, Social-Emotional Learning, guest speakers/instructors, and drama productions. These activities also present opportunities for parents to be involved with the program by sharing their specialties with groups of students.

Recreation / Physical Education

Physical activities are an important part of ASAP because we know it generates energy for a child’s body and brain, thus creating learning that is more effective. Activities include state-approved curriculums CATCH, SPARK and Soccer for Success, organized games, clinics, tournaments, exercises, etc. All recreation and physical education
activities are aligned with the California state standards. Appropriate warm-up activities precede any physical activity
and proper attention is given to health and safety.

The GECAC After School Program at Golden West has benefited my children tremendously. My son, Giovanni, has made a huge turn with his behavior and grades. My daughter, Alanah, has become a leader and helper to her peers. Both of my children have been in the program for almost 3 years and grown in many ways. In the past, Gio would get easily distracted which resulted in his work being incomplete. Although he still may have his moments, the staff at the program have really helped him focus. Every day both of my kids come home with their homework complete. Alanah has grown to take initiative and help others around her. She also enjoys being able to help staff with any tasks they need help with. As a parent who works full time I truly appreciate this program and all the things, the staff has done for my family.
