Art and Athletic Intervention Tracks

Mental health promotion and social/emotional development initiatives are an integral part of our intervention tracks for targeted students. It spans from in-school mentorship to afterschool sports and arts.

Our Targeted Intervention Approach

In-school and after-school extracurricular activities are provided to 3rd - 5th graders. It’s designed to promote healthy lifestyle practices and social/emotional learning opportunities that promote academic/social success and well-being long after our students graduate from elementary school and T2U.
