General Information
Description of ServiceVariety After School Program offers a wide range of Educational, Recreational, Therapeutic, Cultural and Social activities during the after school hours in locations throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region for children with disabilities. Students benefit from high staff to student ratios. Activities offered at Variety help meet or exceed appropriate state and local academic achievement standards in reading and math (based on criterion found in each student's IEP) and improvement in school attendance, classroom performance as well as reduced disciplinary referrals. After school programs can play a key role in engaging youth in the learning process by providing opportunities to explore interests, gain competency in real work skills, solve problems, assume leadership roles, develop a group identity with similar aged peers, connect to adult role models and mentors, and become involved in improving their communities. The program also offers parents and families educational workshops, a Community Advisory Board, and a referral service connecting families to social service opportunities
