“The Sensory Friendly Center was very beneficial to my student’s learning success. Because of my students being able to be a part of this program, several of them who were struggling were promoted to the next grade due to the center’s great volunteers.”

Hands on a globe

Saturday, Nov. 10, the nonprofit met at the Coffee Regional Medical Center in Conference Room 2 for the monthly meeting. The meeting began at 11:00 A.M. and ended at 1:00 P.M. FATE members filled out information that will help the organization prepare for when after-school tutoring begins in Coffee County. Kim Duckworth knew of a class of students who were interested in tutoring and would arrange for them to meet our nonprofit members during a December event.

Jeannie continues to produce weekly blog post/audio for the support of any community member interested in working with us or building their own program.

After-School Program Apps 004  is all about educational iPad and Android apps. I also include a video presentation of one of the apps used in our learning center. The easy instructions within this presentation can be found on this blog page or on my old YouTube channel  named “Dogs Help Kids” . Please let me know what you think.  I’d love to hear  your feedback!

Ok, this time period is really a win-win setup for you. While you are volunteering within the school tutoring one-on-one, you are gaining understanding of the children’s needs and you’re building friendships. Your extra daytime (or nighttime) hours are also productive working on the details of building your after-school program. There are a BUNCH of steps to be accomplished, so you need this period of time while you are tutoring within the school to put every program “block” in its place.
