9 year old Dominic (not his real name) has been part of the YWCA’s After School program for two years. When he first started coming to the YW, his social skills were minimal and his grades and behavior at school were both suffering. But the After School staff and volunteers saw great potential in Dominic! Our counselors worked with him academically and socially to help him be more successful at school. We also worked with Dominic’s parents to develop strategies for discipline, homework, and special family time at home. At the end of last school year, Dominic’s teacher called us frequently to tell us about his tremendous improvements and what a difference the YWCA After School has made in his life. Not only had his teacher seen progress with Dominic, but she was elated that we were able to positively connect with the parents and increase their involvement. Dominic’s parents love our program and have recommended it to their family members. Now 4 of his cousins attend our After School!
