Rising TIDE Free After School Program – Marguerite Kiefer Education Center
Free, weekday program provides homework help and includes a computer bank, comfortable work spaces, and a lending library with nearly 10,000 titles.
Mondays, the tutoring program matches a trained, one-on-one tutor for the school year — tutors not only help with homework, they also give guidance and often become a part of their tutee’s life. The need is great and they are always open to receive new tutors.
Guided Learning, Life Skills and Art Clubs are just some of the clubs that are offered for 6-8 week periods, e.g. Creative Cooking, Manners Talk and Money Counts. The STEM emphasis includes clubs and a Math and Science Center, made possible in part by Southern California Edison.
Special events are held throughout the year, such as a back-to-school prep day with the distribution of school supplies, haircuts, flu shots and more.
