What is the After School League?
The After School League is a safe, nurturing and supportive learning environment. We foster interactive academic experiences that help students to develop leadership, social and emotional, and 21st century skills to prepare them to be successful in their educational and professional careers.
The After School League provides services to over 300 students at South Avondale, Rockdale Academy and Woodward Career Technical High School. We provide:
- Over 2,500 Hours Individual and Group Tutoring in Math and Reading
- Homework Assistance
- College Access
- Ohio Graduation Testing
- ACT/SAT Preparation
- Daily Hot Meals
We leverage our partnerships with 32 corporations and organizations in the Greater Cincinnati region to provide cultural enrichment and extra-curricular activities that broaden the academic experience and create a wellrounded student.
The mission of the Urban League is to transform generations by promoting personal empowerment and
economic self-sufficiency. Children who are academically prepared, and who have developed the skills to succeed in life are the first building block for a healthy and vibrant community. An integral part of student success is having parents and caregivers engaged in and committed to their child’s education. The After School League provides opportunities to better involve parents with a focus on both traditional and unique ways to bring them to the table to help their children to learn, grow and succeed.
Dealing with Relevant Issues—PeaceBuilders Started in 2011, the After School League integrated a
social-emotion curriculum called PeaceBuilders. This collaboration with the Community Police Partnering Center incorporates a science based, research validated, violence prevention curriculum designed to create a common language for peace. The model sets behavior expectations and transforms the climate and culture into one that is cooperative, productive and academically successful.
