GYAC's Afterschool Education program serves students in grades K-12 and provides homework assistance, tutoring, mentoring, cultural/recreational activities and instruction in goal setting, character building and communication skills in a safe and nurturing environment. Through a partnership with the School District of Indian River County, students are transported to GYAC directly from their school. After a light snack and brief recreational break, students transition to their classrooms.
Enrollment is on a first come-first served basis. Completed applications may be submitted Monday - Friday, 8:30am-5:30pm.
The Walter M. Jackson Summer Camp includes academic reinforcement in the morning and recreational activities in the afternoon. A healthy balance of academics and recreation enables GYAC to prepare students for the year ahead while allowing plenty of time to enjoy everything summer break has to offer. GYAC believes strongly, and studies show that students will start school further behind in the fall than they were when school ended if they do not engage in educational activities during the summer.
