After School Programming
Programming in Sunridge and Southside Homes is operated by YWCA Central Carolinas. They have a capacity to serve up to 30 youth in grades K-5 across each site for a total of 60 youth during the school year and summer camp. Programming is focused on increasing literacy skills, reading comprehension, and parental involvement. This is measured by utilization of the Accelerated Reader Program (AR). The overall goal is for each student to increase their AR reading level by four months.
CORE’s partners with the YWCA, Boys and Girls Club, and Above & Beyond Students to provide afterschool and summer activities at three subsidized housing sites.
