BENEFITING: HISPANIC COMMUNITY SERVICES INC
HCSI holds the only bilingual after-school program in the City of Jonesboro, “La Escuelita”. The program strives to improve the quality of life of low income at-risk children. During the school year, 35 children from K to 12th grade make La Escuelita shine from 3pm to 6pm. The demand is even higher, but HCSI´s premises are maxed out to the day.
Our attendees get a daily snack, they receive the help that cannot be provided at home (caused by the language barrier) to do their homework and improve their academic skills while socializing with other children of their age group. HCSI helps families and schools build a safe framework to make these bright minds of the future shine, help us keep them shining!
