With graduation rates as low as 42% in the neighborhoods Sheltering Arms serves, it’s time for a new approach. Our students not only have the potential to graduate; with the right opportunities, they can achieve at the highest levels and obtain the high-tech or high-skill careers of their dreams. Our Afterschool programs unlock student potential by providing a safe environment for children to develop away from the negative influences on their streets. Our unique combination of project-based learning, character development, and eye-opening opportunities puts at-risk children on track to success.
