Superintendent of Youth Services:
The Precinct2gether Youth Program was setup to develop our youth academically, physically and socially, guiding them to become productive citizens in their communities. We achieve this by building partnerships with local schools and providing resources to the youth of Harris County Precinct 2.
Our Precinct2gether After School Youth Program operates Monday through Thursday from 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM beginning in mid-September through the end of March. Even though we possess a strong academic component to assist students in achieving skills necessary for TAAS/TAKS testing success; we also provide unique specialized programs designed to provide children with the life skills they need to succeed in today’s complex world. Each After School Program has a Site Coordinator or certified “Lead Teacher” responsible for general program operations, coordination of activities, supervision of staff and grant reporting. Our staff is comprised of certified instructors, aides and youth counselors that work collectively to implement quality programming for our youth participants. Precinct2gether Youth Program provides a strong academic component in which staff works with students to not only complete homework assignments but to ensure that the concepts learned throughout the day are reinforced during these homework sessions. When hiring staff, we find instructors who can provide academic support in reading & language, science, social studies and mathematics. Once the homework session is completed, we have the students participate in various enrichment activities such as arts & crafts, health, technology, physical fitness and other recreational opportunities. These enrichment activities may vary by site depending on grant support. Periodic field trips are planned based on grant funding. Precinct2gether Youth Program provides a safe and secure environment for your child after school where they can acquire a passion for learning that will last a lifetime.
Our Youth Programming includes Summer Day Camps and After School Programs. We provide quality programming to our student participants including homework assistance, educational field trips, academic enrichment opportunities, cultural art activities as well as unique and exciting special youth events throughout the calendar year.
