The Meadville Family YMCA is offering two new learning support programs designed to help school-age students overcome the many challenges presented during a school year while going through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Both programs take place at the Downtown Y’s new Learning Lab and are staffed by accredited teachers as well as college students pursuing their degree in education.
“It is impossible to understate the importance of these essential learning support programs and the benefits they provide to children in the community,” said Meadville Family YMCA CEO Tina Carter. “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, children in our county’s schools will be faced with unforeseen challenges that no one has ever experienced and it is completely natural to assume there will be additional educational assistance needed outside of the brick-and-mortar school buildings and the Y is happy to step in to fill that need.”
The Virtual Learning program provides a safe and structured environment for children to attend school classes remotely while being supervised by Y staff. Children enrolled in the program will also receive breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.
Homework support is available in three options: small groups, one-on-one tutoring and virtually. Sessions are available either individually or in packages of 10. Individual sessions can cost as little as $7 per session and when purchased in a package are buy nine get one free.
