This collage of photos shows the services provided for the ELL students, the majority are Chinese and Latino students, in the Afterschool Program. Everyday the students come in the program, they know they are safe, welcome and worry-free of language barrier. We encourage and promote the idea of peer tutoring and mentoring from other students who speak the same language. By the end of everyday, these students get the chance to finish their homework or simply to understand about the subject matters written in English. There are spaces in the program provided for their various needs: tutoring space, homework space, hang-out space, computer/ internet access space, etc...
