Stewpot's After-School and Summer Camp Programs provide disadvantaged, impoverished youth with the necessary supports to help them succeed both in school and in life. We serve children and teens in grades K-12 who live in the neighborhoods surrounding Stewpot and who attend Jackson Public Schools.
During the school year, the After-School Program activities include homework assistance, specialized tutoring, computer skills classes, college preparation, dropout prevention, and life skills education. During the summer, the children and teens engage in enrichment activities which are designed to deepen their educational development and expand their experiences of the world.
At Stewpot, we provide students with relevant academic and social supports in the afternoon and summer. We teach them life skills they might not otherwise learn. We connect them and their families to larger opportunities. In short, we help them see how education gives them the best tools for escaping poverty.
