The afterschool and summer enrichment programs serve children that reside in PEC's emergency, transitional and permanent housing. Through daily tutoring and academic enrichment programs, PEC helps homeless children to perform better in school. While these are children's programs, they are especially designed to encourage parent involvement in their children’s growth and education.
All school-age children living at PEC are enrolled in school.The afterschool program addresses children’s academic, developmental, and social needs and works to improve a child’s success in school. Parents, volunteers and PEC staff provide homework assistance and tutoring.
The summer enrichment program provides on-site academic enrichment and recreational activities as well as field trips to museums and cultural events. Parents escort children on field trips, which encourage family bonding. Parents are also taught the importance of providing cultural and enrichment activities for children.
