TEAM HUMANITY AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Verticals offers Team Humanity After School as a supercharged enrichment program geared toward the advancement of elementary and middle school students after school.
Students will be involved in structured, entertaining activities that will help them develop and strengthen their academic, social, emotional, and physical skills. Parents will be happy to know that their children will always be supervised in this safe environment.
We provide a safe and welcoming after school environment, with a wide range of activities and opportunities for our students to grow. We inspire our students to be lifelong learners, encourage creative expression and build their sense of self-confidence. We encourage our students to think big, increase engagement in their communities, and make positive contributions to the world around them.
AFTER SCHOOL THEMES:
Arts and Crafts
In Arts & Crafts Club, children will learn techniques to turn their ideas into reality under the guidance of our Team Humanity staff. Club members will use their creativity and imagination to make gifts, decorations, and develop their personal style.
Students will learn about mysterious rainforests, towering mountains, sweltering volcanoes, exotic cultures, and many other wonders this amazing planet has to offer. Students will also learn about travel and the great explorers who gave us the maps and charts we take for granted today.
Whether it is a cold glass of lemonade, a shoveled driveway, or an iPhone, creating value for others is vital to any entrepreneur. In Team Humanity Enterprises, our students will learn how to think constructively about their own cool ideas for creating value, practice some of the steps for making them a reality, and learn about what it takes to keep their young businesses running.
While it may seem like everywhere your child turns there is a touch-screen calling to them, there is still nothing that opens up the world of imagination and possibility like a good book. By reading both quietly and out loud, Storytelling Club students will greatly improve their ability to determine meaning from the written word along with public speaking and listening skills. Watch your child discover more about their world through a book – great readers often become great thinkers!
Moving & Grooving
Zumba! Yoga! Dancing! These easy fitness activities for kids make exercise so much fun that your children won’t notice they’re working out. When you motivate children to exercise, they will be happier, healthier, and more focused!
Whether in games of chance or games of skill, board games are an incredible source of fun, social interaction, and mental activity. Students in this club will play many of their favorite board games, and even learn some new ones to teach their parents.
Parachutes, spaceships, lasers – we all know that science is a subject for the cool kids. Students in Team Humanity After School Science will learn how to ask the questions that are the beginning of all scientific discoveries, how to make a hypotheses, and of course the fun part – conducting an experiment to see what happens. Through a hands-on and exciting curriculum, this club will help your child become more curious and have a deeper understanding about how the world works.
More and more, children in 4th grade and up are asked to create book reports, graphs, presentations, and charts using the newest technology. Give your child the computer skills they need so they can focus on the project rather than the mechanics. The first objective of this class is to help improve your child’s typing skills. They will use Microsoft Word to write their own memoir, autobiography or short story. Your child will then learn the basics of Microsoft Excel including formatting, graph and chart creation, and writing simple formulas.
Students will dance the afternoon away to kids bop favorites. Give your child the opportunity to get their energy out before going home for the night!
Children will be taken through various exercises, drills, and games to improve their athletic skills. Students will learn about the history of sports, key players, and different key mental aspects of the game that players must possess in order to be successful on and off the court. This training is good for players of all levels
Bricks on Bricks
Everybody likes to build! Creating new objects has always been at the core of human existence, and is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling activities for the old as well as the young. In our club, your child will learn many basic building techniques and will be encouraged to put their imaginations and hands to work in making their ideas turn into reality.
Many people would be surprised if you told them that designing websites nowadays is so easy, a child can do it. Today there are so many tools available which make web design easy, kids aren’t the only ones who can do it… soon they will be teaching their parents as well! Children enrolled in this class will create their own website and will be able to show it off to their friends and family.
