Vincent's Community Outreach
**Covid 19 Update**
Due to the current COVID 19 outbreak, St. Louis Public Schools have suspended in-school learning. In the interest of the health of our clients, staff, and volunteers, the After School program is currently not meeting in person. During this time, the director is focusing on the students emotional well-being by checking in on her students regularly while also providing them with virtual tutoring services. We will resume our standard practices at a later date. If you have any questions or would like more information, click here to email our After School Program Director, Teresa Corby.
After School Tutoring Program
Our After School Program maintains, coordinates, implements and administers an after school care program that partners with Peabody Grade School to enable its children to be cared for in a safe and protective environment. The After School Program is a liaison with parents, community volunteers, and elementary school management to provide students currently enrolled at Peabody Elementary School with a stable and creative environment in which to succeed in their education and improve their emotional development and wellbeing. This is accomplished by creating and establishing a partnership that is a positive, safe and fun atmosphere where VCO Staff, Peabody Elementary School Staff, and Volunteers can work together for the good of the community.
Our After School Program currently provides ten children, K-5 with the opportunity to participate in after school care and tutoring. On Tuesday & Thursday afternoons, you can hear the excitement of little kids running up the stairs into "Miss Teresa's classroom". Teresa Corby is the Director of our After School Tutoring Program for students ages K-5th grade. It is our hope that with increased funding, we will be able to add a grade each year.
Along with trained volunteers, Teresa works hard with the students and their reading and math skills, and has helped to increase each student by an entire grade level in their testing! She also happens to be an artist. While encouraging her students to have a creative outlet and design what comes from their heart, they're also given a safe space to get some extra attention and TLC each week. Our kids LOVE our program and we hope you'll take a look at what we've been able to accomplish in just a few short years.
