Providing diverse and tailored learning experiences for our youth.
EBAYC’s Expanded Learning After -School Program at Franklin Elementary School is dedicated to providing a diverse learning experience for youth. We serve 110 2nd-5th grade youth all 177 days of the school year, and provide students a diverse menu of learning activities, including academic support, enrichment education, community building and college-going culture activities and parent engagement.
Strengthening Study and Self-Motivation Skills
Academic Mentors support their advisory cohort with homework completion, learning strategies and test-taking strategies. Mentors review youth homework assignments and organize them in small groups of four tailored to each youth’s academic performance level to foster peer collaboration. Mentors log homework progress and completion daily, and review progress during their consultations with school-day teachers. Youth participate in Literacy and Math Clubs to build and reinforce their core academic skills. Academic Mentors guide youth through the process of reading relevant, culturally diverse, socially and emotionally rich literature. Math Club engages youth in fun, hands-on interactive games to make math come alive.
Paving the Path to Higher Education
College & Career
Students participate in College and Career classes that allows them to get a glimpse of what they might want to study when they get to that point in their life. Our mentors choose a variety of majors and build a “college” curriculum around those areas. For the the 2018-19 year, our program focused on: College of Science, Liberal Arts, Criminal Justices, Architecture, Social Media, and Aerospace Engineering. Each students will get the opportunity to learn and experience each “college” as they rotate classes each month.
Expanding Youth Horizons
Every semester, students participate in enrichment workshops designed to gain exposure to new learning experiences, such as team sports (basketball, soccer, flag football), arts and crafts, and cooking (multi ethnic and culture). The workshops are designed to incorporate character and culture building with the underlying themes of leadership, empathy, cultural sensitivity and social responsibility. A selected group of Enrichment Electives are offered through our partnerships with UC Berkeley SEED, Street Soccer USA and Running for a Better Oakland.
