According to various agencies who do research on childcare, After-school programs help students find success with employment later in life, keep them out of trouble during their school years, and bless hard working families who want to provide the best for their children.  According to one report:

Children who spend time in enrichment activities have better grades, better work habits and more positive relationships with their peers. After-school programs give children the opportunity to develop creative thinking, problem-solving, communication and self-direction skills that are linked with success in the workplace.

Mission Arlington® hosts after-school programs in 34 locations. More than 1,500 (1,683) students attend a homework help session with us each week.  We are so blessed to spend time with the students, and to be one contributing factor towards their success in school.  When they begin to do better in school, they tend to succeed more at home, in their relationships, and to feel better about themselves.

Working on homework and learning God's word is an important part of Mission Arlington's "after-school" programs.

Most of Mission Arlington®‘s after-school work involves snacks, creative games, and Bible stories, in addition to homework help.  The volunteer after-school teachers encourage these young people, and listen to what is going on in their lives.

We are so blessed to support students in our community.  Give us a call at 817-277-6620 if you would like to be a part of this great team of homework helpers.
Thank you so much for the many ways you give, volunteer, and pray for Mission Arlington®.  Your support encourages us, and makes such a difference in our community.
