Thumbs Up - Sharing Our Success...

This fall, the JC Promise Zone made a few changes to our after-school programs. Partnering with the Social Workers in the Primary, Intermediate and Middle schools, students participated in various 8 week after school groups for their grade level. The 1st grade boys focused on mindfulness. The 5th grade girls focused on self-esteem and the middle school group focused on life skills. Each group had high school mentors assigned to support the students in the group and develop their own mentoring skills. It was exciting to see each group develop, and grow through the Promise Zone model by leveraging many different supports through partnerships with the school, Binghamton University, community partners, high school students, families, and district staff!
