Terms to Know About Children's After School Programs

Children’s after school programs are a way for educators and mentors to transform and elevate the quality of education that students are receiving in the classroom. A variety of after school programs are available for students, including religious youth groups, study groups, sports teams and tutoring. Activity based, recreational programs offer children a playful outlet, rather than the more educational curriculum-based tutoring programs. Be sure to understand some terms before going to visit the private and public after school programs that are available in your local community.

  • Mentor – A trusted person who acts as a teacher providing leadership, guidance, counseling and support to youth. Often mentoring troubled or under privelaged youth, mentors also sponsor and support families.
  • Community-based organization - Referring to youth clubs in the local community, these organizations can also include local sports clubs, a law enforcement group, an arts council or even a fraternal organization like a rotary club.
  • Recreation – After school recreation programs are not academic in nature, but rather allow students a chance to play, be creative, interact with others and learn specific skills. Recreational programs commonly include sporting activity and creative outlets, like music, dance and art classes. Summer and sports camps commonly involve a lot of recreational activity, whereas educational based programs generally involve more studying.
  • Tutor – A person that is employed to instruct an individual or group in learning a certain curriculum. Students often utilize private tutors in subjects where they struggle to grasp the material or concepts that are presented by the teacher. Tutors help students excel is all academic subjects, including reading, math, English and science.
