In partnership with key community supporters, Loveworks Afterschool Leadership is a program that focuses on leadership and character development, experiential learning, and community impact.
Four days a week the doors of the Loveworks campus are lined with leaders welcoming and cheering our students as they step off the school bus and into the Loveworks Center.
Volunteers and mentors facilitate groups, games, conversations, and meal times. Each student receives personalized attention, snack, and a nutritious dinner meal, while participating in specialized projects involving local artists and community professionals. Experiential learning projects are geared towards developing skill sets within the students and broadening their awareness to cultural diversity.
