After School and Parenting Programs
VOTCDc's after school program is designed to improve students' academic
success and engagement in the learning process. The
program provides academic and remedial instruction for students in the
areas of English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social
Studies and Foreign Languages. Students gain specific knowledge and
skills to help them meet the required Standards of Learning
(SOL) for the State of Virginia. Sessions are conducted once a week for
students in grades 6-12.
Parents As Models (PAM) is a parenting program founded by VOTCDC to help
and engage parents in their children's academic success.
Research supports the notion that parental participation in the
educational process can significantly predict student performance,
social adjustment and positively impact learning. U. S. Department of
Education, National Center for Education Statistics (IES)
research suggests that parents will participate in events that "feature
some interaction with students' teachers and provide
information on "parenting and school-related issues."
PAM supports, enhances and includes activities that strengthen this link
between student academic achievement, positive behavior,
and parental involvement.
