Jubilee Youth Services is a safe, loving place of belonging that addresses the academic, social, and spiritual needs of Jubilee Housing’s children in a deeply personal way through quality and creative after school and summer programming.

We Provide:

  • A Safe and Supportive Environment
  • Meaningful Relationships—with staff, tutors and mentors
  • Healthy Life Skills Lessons
  • Teen Leadership Development
  • Community Service Opportunities

 

 

 

Early Start

Kindergarten-2nd Grade

 

Early Start combines academic enrichment with recreational activity in a safe and inclusive environment. We strive to foster the development of the Six Life Skills in Beyond Behavior Management:

ATTACHMENT

AFFILIATION

SELF-REGULATION

INITIATIVE

PROBLEM-SOLVING

RESPECT

We believe that providing children with a solid and nurturing foundation will empower them in academic, social, and spiritual endeavors throughout their lives.

We engage participants in the following daily activities:

Snack & Share

Outdoor Play

Homework

Enrichment Activities

Supervised Indoor Play

Reading & Circle Time

 

Activity Zone

Grades 3-6

 

 

In the Activity Zone, we provide participants with meaningful mentor relationships to foster character development, responsibility, leadership and appreciation for community.  We strive to bridge the gap between the lessons of Early Start and adventures of the Teen Renaissance.

We achieve our goals together through:

Homework Help

Guided Reading

Computer Time

Mentoring

Field Trips

Outdoor Recreation

Group Activity

Gardening

Art Activities

Thoughtfully planned incentive programs

 

Teen Renaissance
