The After School Program is available Monday-Friday from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. when school is in session. We follow the Lowell Public Schools calendar and are closed on weather-related closings.
After arriving at Girls Inc. and signing in, the girls are provided with a healthy snack. Members are then allowed free time to do homework, play games, and socialize with other girls in a supervised but unstructured setting. Once all the girls have arrived, we proceed with daily announcements and structured activity sessions. Participants have the opportunity to choose activities in areas such as computers, cooking, arts and crafts, physical fitness, games, science discovery, and homework help. We also offer special classes at no extra fee as well as special guest speakers, field trips and service projects.
Middle school girls are encouraged to do peer mentoring. Homework help and special projects are the focus of this program for middle school girls (grades 5-8). The group meets for homework sessions, to work on study skills, test preparation and academic improvement. After homework is done, the girls work together on special projects such as making crafts for fundraising or community support efforts, computer activities, and research projects. To sign up, simply request an application from our office and sharpen your pencils!
In addition, Girls Inc. members have the opportunity to reach out into their community through several community action initiatives. Check with us for scheduled activity dates and to pick up a permission form for any of our programs.
