Thanks to our supporters, volunteers, staff, donors, and our rock star students, Jubilee’s Afterschool numbers are knocking our socks off!
This was the third year of our dual-location afterschool program— one at Jubilee, and one at Oran M. Roberts Elementary School. The addition of a second site has increased Jubilee’s afterschool capacity by 66%. So the question is: can we grow the quantity of our program while sustaining quality?
Results are in!
We’re so proud of these 248 children for the significant gains they’ve made over the past school year! Most children who are entering our program for the first time are about two years behind in math and reading— and without intervention, those gaps tend to grow over time. So it’s important that their afterschool time is utilized strategically, with lots of fun and hands-on activities to increase the skills they need most.
That’s not all! Jubilee’s afterschool program was also recognized by Dallas Afterschool as a top organization in Community & Family Programs, and our second location was recognized as a top-quality provider of afterschool enrichment. We are so proud of these awards and the whole team who made them possible!
