Empowering
Tomorrow's Leaders

At Advancing After School @Y.O.U.R. the staff has fostered a high quality environment that allows the youth to think, live and learn at higher levels of achievement. With the Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STREAM) curriculum, kindergarten - eighth grade students can examine problems and see challenges instead of obstacles through technological development. Students are actively engaged in activities that promote strong character building exercises to help develop a strong self- image with confidence to face life’s challenges. Through evidence based (STREAM) – curriculum students are able to problem solve by building on prior learning experiences through a comprehensive framework.

Advancing After School @YOUR provides experiential learning that allows students the freedom to choose and engage in Learning Centers that spark their interest for future career choices. From knowledge workers, to educators, to scientists, engineers, artists and technicians, the focus is on the whole child including a broad range of (STREAM) career opportunities to intentionally guide children’s learning in a fun and creative environment. The STREAM Curriculum is designed to support DCPS common core standards. It was not designed to mandate specific teaching practices or materials to counteract what students learn but to support academic instruction that enables children to make progress in meeting their academic goals.
