Achieve is a tuition-free educational program serving low-income middle school students. Achieve seeks to increase our scholars’ academic skills, motivation, and self-confidence, and put them on the path to college. We do this by providing academic and social enrichment through a rigorous and engaging six-week summer program, as well as ongoing academic year tutoring and support. Achieve students join the program the summer after 6th grade, and graduate from the program in the summer before 9th grade. The students all attend public schools in Boston, and live in various neighborhoods throughout the City including Mattapan, Dorchester, Roxbury, Roslindale and Hyde Park. Nearly all of our scholars are students of color, and all come from low-income families.

BACK TO SCHOOL looks very different this year! We know remote learning in the spring was challenging for many children. We also know many parents struggled with trying to balance work, home and school. Here at Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester we are pivoting, designing a Learning Hub that will offer Learning Groups within each building. Learning Hubs are designed to support k-8 students as they adapt to distance learning and eventually, the hybrid model. Once the hybrid model begins, children will come to the Club on days they would normally be home. One exception will be Wednesdays. We are planning a rotation to allow for every other Wednesday, based on your child’s assigned group at BPS. The Club staff will engage cohorts of children grouped by age/ grade level to support remote learning for families in need of full-day programming this fall. Children will come to the Club and sign onto their classrooms with their school issued Chromebook. Staff will be here to assist with questions, technology issues, etc. Our hope is that our staff will develop relationships with the BPS teachers as well, allowing for more meaningful support for each child. Additional activities will include: arts & crafts, stem, health/wellness/fitness, outdoor play, and more.

Dance with Books

Grades Served: K1-2 ; Program Structure: Remote

Contact: Sharon Shakur | dancewithbooksboston@gmail.com

Dance with Books® is a Dance Education program for students in Grades K thru 2nd grade. Dance books are used as a springboard for students to create and explore movements, learn dances from different countries, and practice movement skills: balance, coordination, and control. Dancing is great exercise and a way to stay fit. Our bodies are designed to move! Dancing reduces stress and anxiety during these turbulent times. Dancing is fun! Many libraries have limited access, so it is wonderful that Ms. Shakur, MA reads dance books to students and asks them to respond through movements, being creative, and open-ended questions. Activities also include a coloring page and an opportunity for students to receive feedback on their dancing. Weekly video episodes of Dance with Books are emailed to enrolled students/parents by Ms. Shakur. Press the links in the emails and presto, you are watching an episode. Also, in the email to students/parents, Ms. Shakur includes a link to activities related to the lessons. Dance with Books lessons were written by Sharon Shakur, MA, an expert in the field of Dance Education. Dance with Books lessons promote performing arts literacy: speaking, listening, and reading about Dance. The dance lessons also promote social and emotional skills such as team building and perseverance. Ms. Shakur encourages Parents to let their children participate in Dance with Books lessons at least one time per week during afterschool hours. Visit the website at www.dancewithbooksboston.blogspot.com. Dance, Create. Have Fun! Include Dance with Books as part of your child’s Dance Education at home.

SWIA Flyer

Grades Served:3-4; Program Structure: Remote Learning

Contact: Leslie Briones | leslie.briones@myswia.org, Tashawna Hamilton | tashawna.hamilton@myswia.org

STEAM Girls Collaborative at SWIA is an educational program for 3rd-4th grade girls that focuses on Computer Science, Art, and Environmental Science. With these disciplines, we aim to spark an interest and potentially a lifetime passion in girls from a young age.
The program is project-based learning, where students will learn a variety of theoretical and practical skills in a creative and interactive environment. At SWIA, we believe that exposing young generations to these disciplines develops their critical thinking skills, setting them up for future success. We mainly dedicate this program to girls because we recognize the lack of women in the STEM world. We think that biases in these fields need to be prevented and that it is essential to give women equal opportunities to pursue STEM careers and narrow the gender pay gap.

Strong Women in Action (SWIA) – Youth STEM Initiative

Contact: Leslie Briones | leslie.briones@myswia.org, Tashawna Hamilton | tashawna.hamilton@myswia.org

Strong Women in Action was created to help families interrupt the cycle of poverty by providing to those families education. The Youth STEM program focuses on providing education for children. Technology is the future, and because of that, teaching children STEM will provide them with better opportunities in the future and the amount of careers that are available to them. In school children learn the basics about english, math and science. In the Youth STEM program students build on their existing math and science skills while also being introduced to technology and engineering. In the science portion, students will have a chance to learn about greenhouse gases, weather and climate, and how they relate to global warming. During the technology part students will learn about the importance of web safety, the various components that make-up the inside of their computers, how to code with python and how to code with HTML. Finally in Engineering, students will be learning about types of engineering and the careers available for engineers. They will also learn basic concepts of how to use their creativity, logical thinking and pre-existing math skills to engineer different objects. Together these topics are designed to help our students achieve the best education possible and expand their horizons.
