THRIVE Afterschool Program

  • Afterschool programs expand learning opportunities for young people of all ages. These creative and fun spaces allow scholars the opportunity to meet new friends, explore new interests, and learn exciting things. Afterschool offers hands-on projects and team-building activities that foster resilience, confidence and healthy relationships. These programs are staffed by certified teachers and caring mentors who are trained to help young people develop important life skills like coping with stress and using their voice. Quality programs are tailored to meet each scholar’s academic, physical, and social emotional needs.

    Jackson Public School District provides afterschool programming across all feeder patterns and FOR EACH school, ensuring equitable access to high-quality out-of-school-time experiences. Set to begin September 25, 2023 through April 19, 2024, this year's programming offers homework help, afterschool meals, academic tutoring, transportation home, and a host of enrichment activities provided by our afterschool partners. These activities include, but are not limited to, sports, dance, visual arts, performing arts, STEM, college readiness, career readiness, financial literacy, test prep, ACT Prep, social emotional learning, mentoring, healthy eating, dramatic arts, and MUCH MORE.

    It is important that scholars who participate in these programs are committed and consistently attend their scheduled time to fully benefit from this additional opportunity for academic support and enrichment activities. We are intentional about celebrating each scholar's individuality, interests, abilities, and talents, as well as providing each scholar in each school with equitable access to high-quality instruction and resources.
