Avondale Meadows Academy is a thriving K-5 school located in the heart of the eastside of Indianapolis.
These programs give our young people opportunities to discover their passion by creating short films, learning how to code, and training like Olympic athletes!
We hope you'll join us in enabling our students to experience these fantastic afterschool programs.
Why Afterschool Programs
In the US there are currently 20 million students that want to participate in an afterschool program but aren't able to.
Students who are in afterschool programs show greater engagement, better grades, improved behavior, and a sense of belonging and community at their school. They are also more likely to graduate high school and attend college.
The problem is a lack of access to and funding for great programs. We can do better!
