Beyond Housing’s Youth Programs are and offered at no cost to families year-round to empower young people to believe in their ability to make a difference in themselves, their families, community, and country, and to increase their social-emotional, cultural, and academic capacities.

After School Program

The state-licensed After-School Program extends classroom learning through homework help and tutoring from licensed teachers. It encourages weekly reading goals and helps students maintain and achieve improvements in their reading and math abilities. Beyond academic services, the After-School Program offers a variety of structured activities promoting social-emotional development and civic engagement, including music and dance lessons, chess club, and Girl Scouts.

Summer Programming

Our summer program is based on the Children's Defense Fund (CDF) Freedom School model. It features a daily reading curriculum and activities geared towards discussions on service and leadership. The program promotes youth empowerment, leadership, and creativity. Freedom School also helps to curb summer learning loss and close achievement gaps with its strong literacy foundation.

Youth Sports

Beyond Housing’s baseball league provides opportunities for youth to participate in sports during the summer. Through the program, in partnership with Cardinals Care, children receive free uniforms and baseball equipment. They become more active, develop teamwork skills, and are kept engaged in positive activities outside of school.

School Supports

Family Engagement Liaisons work in the Normandy Schools Collaborative to connect families to resources, services, and information to help students succeed. Their purpose is to bridge the gap between home and school and address the basic needs barriers that compromise students’ chances of academic success. Family Engagement Liaisons address the non-academic concerns that impact performance so school administrators and faculty can focus on instruction

To get connected, ask for the Family Engagement Liaison at your Normandy school.

Colllege Access

The Beyond Housing College Savings Program breaks down barriers that prevent students in the Normandy Schools Collaborative from proceeding to college. Students who participate receive financial education, career counseling, support navigating the college application process, and a matched college savings account where they can save up to $500, which is matched on a 3:1 basis up to a maximum of $1,500. This gives each student up to $2,000 to use toward college expenses.
