In our CARES program, students receive the support and guidance that they need to succeed in school through one-on-one tutoring and mentoring in a Christian setting. We focus on the whole child and their academic, emotional, spiritual, and social growth. We work closely with teachers and parents to develop and execute an individualized learning plan for each child and routinely see improvement in subject comprehension and grades. You may mail completed applications to Wesley House.
PACE (Performing Arts and Cultural Education) is a part of the CARES curriculum, offering a variety of activities focused on arts and culture.
Through PACE, we offer learning beyond academics. Through such activities as singing, sewing, music lessons, golf or dance, the PACE program allows at-risk youth to improve their learning, skills, creativity, discipline, and ability to work as a team through creative expression. PACE exposes our children to positive activities that build confidence and self-esteem.
If you are interested in leading a PACE activity please contact Anderson Olds at firstname.lastname@example.org or (865) 524-5494.
STEP (Summer Time Enrichment Program) is a summer day camp for inner-city children and youth.
STEP is a summer day camp program that continues where CARE ends. Each day the children receive breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. But most importantly, they receive two and a half hours of educational instruction each morning in a fun learning environment. This educational focus better prepares our students to successfully return to school in the fall. Afternoons are reserved for field trips, swimming, arts and crafts, and Wednesday water play.
