The Riverside Education Center holds an after school program everyday where students are able to get with staff and volunteers and work on different subjects in school and their homework.
There are about 75 students who attend the after school program. The center has about 40 volunteers making the ratio 1:3, which parents say is great because it gives their kids more one on one interaction.
Along with getting questions answered and homework finished, the students are able to take part in enrichment activities like drum rhythm and play, nature/outdoor learning, scrap-booking, and break dancing.
