After School Tutoring/Literacy Program
Level UP Youth Outreach partners with Doyle Elementary School to provide the After School Program two days per week, throughout the school year. The outline of the project is to match a certified teacher with the students providing specialized help with immediate reading issues. There are three components to program: literacy development, recreation and homework assistance. The goal for the project is to see students reading at the desired grade level or above.
Is designed to give young ladies, grades 5th - 6th an opportunity to feel empowered, gain self- esteem and awareness, develop positive coping mechanisms, improve daily problem-solving skills, feel connected with other girls, and make healthy decisions as they grow through turbulent times. Through counseling in peer groups, group discussion, and fun activities, girls learn more about themselves and be better equipped to handle real life situations. The GIRLS Group meets once weekly throughout the school year.
DYS Outreach Project
Caring Communities/LevelUP works jointly with the Division of Youth Services to build a strong network of resources prior to youth graduating from DYS Services. The Coordination involves building strong relationships several month prior to release. Group activities, outings and individual support from a mentor help to guide the youth and decrease the number of youth that return to DYS.
LevelUP provides summer camps that work to instill character, build life skills and provide a resource that offers an outlet for youth. The summer camps are located in East Prairie and Charleston. Dates for the camps and the locations are listed online at Levelupyouth.com along with registration information.
