Developing Skills For The 21st Century
By providing structured enriching learning opportunities, after-school programs can improve children’s academic performance and meet their social, emotional and physical development needs. In addition, enrichment opportunities not available during the regular school day—such as art, music, and drama—can be offered to complement the regular school-day program.
MOUSE Squad of California gives youth access to education and training necessary to be successful in today’s information society, while helping the public school system realize a vision for 21st century teaching and learning. Aspiranet’s MOUSE Squad teaches participating youth:
- Leadership Skills
- Technology Skills
- School and Community Support Tactics
Community volunteers serve as mentors assisting students in reading and understanding on-line curriculum. Volunteers teach computer, software, customer service, troubleshoot computers, printers, and other equipment. MOUSE Squad of California is a partner with Making Opportunities for Upgrading Schools & Education, a New York City-based non-profit.
