In January 2017, Loveworks Leadership expanded into the Western Heights School District, reaching 5th and 6th grade students at Bridgestone Intermediate School and 7th and 8th grade students at Western Heights Middle School.
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 volunteers and mentors facilitate groups, games, and conversations. Each student receives personalized attention, 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.
