The Providence After School Alliance (PASA), is excited to announce two opportunities to lead programming in both of our expanded learning after school models.
The AfterZone provides free after-school and expanded learning programming for over 1,900 middle school youth at five of the six middle schools throughout the City of Providence.
The Hub, in partnership with the Providence Public Schools, provides expanded learning opportunities (ELOs) for youth in Providence public high schools — for which participating youth can earn credit toward high school graduation. ELOs in Providence allow youth to be engaged in meaningful, rigorous learning anytime, anywhere. For example, musicians learn focus and perseverance from long hours of practice sessions and auditions; gamers and computer tinkerers learn to think critically and push through challenges every time they encounter a new bug or programming problem; artists expand their minds with big picture, out-of-the-box creative thinking.
If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact:
AfterZone Director Rob Randall – firstname.lastname@example.org / 401 490-9599 x105
PASA Deputy Director Alex Molina – email@example.com / 401 490-9599 x108
We look forward to seeing your proposals and applications!
Hub Call for Programs
The Providence After School Alliance (PASA), in partnership with the Providence Public Schools, is looking for non-profit organizations and business and industry partners to apply to provide “expanded learning opportunities” which provide youth with hands-on, relevant experiences to prepare them for life beyond high school, in both career and academic pathways.
This opportunity is ideal for existing funded programs looking to work with PASA and Providence Public Schools to further develop their programs to be eligible as credit-bearing opportunities for high school youth.
As an ELO provider you will receive the following resources and supports from PASA:
- Technical Assistance and Professional Development opportunities around the use of validated measurement tools
- Access to youth and their corresponding high schools
- Facilitation of ELO curriculum approval process with PPSD
- Youth and program digital badges
- Up to $1,000 stipend per program, per session to help defray the costs of the necessary administrative functions and planning activities to make their program eligible as a credit-bearing opportunity for youth. (contingent upon pending funding)
