Students increase their computer literacy while learning how to become good citizens, develop leadership skills, and become advocates for change in the community. The award-winning curriculum is accessible 24/7. The secure, online learning and information management system, APOLLO, enrolls youth in the program and provides performance tracking using student portfolios, records attendance and computer competency scores, and measures daily classroom behavior as a proxy for social development. All support documentation is available online.
YLA’s 20 year history of success in schools and after-school programs has demonstrated that students, especially those with special needs, learn best in a stimulating, hands-on environment that provides an “in real life” experience and self-paced exercises that build specific skills. Whether negotiating solutions to everyday situations in “Break it Down” or discussing the meaning of their favorite songs in “Perpetrating Rhymes,” hyperactive students become more focused, while “silent” students become more involved in classroom discussions.
