Frick Impact Academy
Engaging and Educating our Young Leaders
EBAYC’s After School Program at Frick focuses on establishing a community-based environment where students feel socially and physically safe, and are able to learn and become successful leaders of tomorrow. Students are encouraged to take leadership roles while promoting integrity, respect, kindness to others. We are proud of our diverse population and we serve a large group of newcomers, refugees and English Language learners.
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 a Literacy Club 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.
Fostering an Inclusive Community
Community Leadership Circles
Academic Mentors implement Building Intentional Communities curriculum to provide a safe, supportive space for youth to express themselves and build connections to support their social and emotional growth. Youth gain leadership skills to co-design and co-facilitate a group activity for their peers with support from their Academic Mentors.
Expanding Youth Horizons
The menu of enrichment electives include team sports (flag football, co-ed basketball, cross country, or soccer); environmental science (cooking, gardening, recycling and composting, or water conservation); performance arts (hip hop or modern dance); technology and media (computer coding, responsible social media, yearbook or newsletter); and leadership (service learning or community service). The menu of enrichment electives is responsive to youth’s expressed interests as well as Academic Mentors’ expertise. A selected few Enrichment Electives are offered through our partnerships with Soccer Without Borders and Upward Roots.
